Exercise Clothing Store Athleta to Replace La Tasca in Old Town

A new women-focused athletic wear chain Athleta could replace the now-closed tapas restaurant La Tasca at 607 King Sreet.

According to a filing at the Board of Architectural Review for the March 3 meeting, Athleta owner Gap Inc. is seeking permits to restructure the store to better function as retail. The storefront windows would be replaced with larger, aluminum framed ones and the front door replaced with a new glass one.

The store primarily focuses on athletic attire for women and girls, though it also sells dresses, jackets, and now masks.

Athleta would be the third Gap-owned store on the block, with a Gap Factory at 622 King Street and a Banana Republic at 628 King Street.
