Does anyone have an example of a gymnasium built in a neighborhood or a walkable urban environment that has some visual interest at the pedestrian level along the façade (and not a brick wall with windows along the top)

While this is not a gymnasium, it's a large auditorium (stage theater) that tried to respect the street:

The ground floor and mezzanine of this building are currently a fully-equipped gym

Somewhat related is a question for all: on paper, this building doesn't fit the checkoff of pedestrian friendly buildings: the windows are above the height of the pedestrian. Yet, this is a busy, active street that any of us would say works well. But why - is the grandeur of the building overall maybe?

Well, it is a VERY densely occupied area, mostly retail and office but with limited residential, it is also an area of great historical and geographic relevance.
But my post was partly facetious.
