There will be some prime real estate open on Newbury Street very soon.

Emerge Spa, a three-story salon and spa with a roof deck that’s been located on one of the Back Bay’s busiest blocks since 2006, is closing its doors May 31. But there’s no need for faithful customers to fret: The spa is merging with G2O Spa + Salon, which was founded by the same woman, Joyce Hampers, and located directly across the street. Joymark Inc. owns and operates both locations.

“G2O is the trend and continues to flourish and grow. With the consolidation of Emerge under the G2O brand we look forward to providing Bostonians with unparalleled services and amenities,” Hampers says.

G2O’s reps tell me that construction will begin in just a few weeks (the first week of April) and they hope to be done by May 31, just in time for a grand re-opening party the next day. The spa and salon will remain open during construction.

While the reps wouldn’t divulge how much the reno will cost, they did share a few details on what to expect:

As for the enormous space that will soon be available on Newbury Street, there are no details (that they’d give us) at this time on who will fill the spot or what the rent was, but it’s safe to assume that another high-end retailer will grab the prime location very soon.
