Is Roslindale fit for a 24-hour health club?

The landlord for the new FitChoice 24/7 health club on Washington Street goes before the Zoning Board of Appeals next week for permission to let the facility live up to its name and actually operate around the clock. The fitness business, which replaced the Sugar restaurant and bakery, already advertises it's open 24 hours - although staffed only for 12 hours on weekdays - but it turns out you need zoning permission to actually never close. The board's hearing is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday in its eighth-floor hearing room in City Hall.
