Justin Christopher and Karin Antanaitis, Owners of Floating Lotus on Bearskin Neck in Rockport have successfully negotiated to take over the right side of the old Empire building.
Its a four level space they plan to share with Yoga Joy Studio, owned by Paula Passanisi, E-RYT, LCSW, which will occupy the bottom level in the back. (Nice parking back there!) The street level will be the retail store for Floating Lotus featuring handmade, fair trade clothing, jewelry & textiles. And for those that have been peaking through the windows, the upper level in the back is to be used for an event space featuring live music, sound meditation, classes, local art and more! I’m not sure what the plan is for the upper level, but knowing Justin and Karin I am sure it will be put to good use.
Justin and Karin opened Floating Lotus in Rockport about 11 years ago and have grown it to a very respectable business. I am sure that they will do wonders in Downtown Gloucester
