Records submitted to the City of Meridian indicate that VillaSport, a large planned gym featuring a spa, restaurant, and bar, may no longer be in the works.
Centerpointe is a large mixed-use project planned for south of Ustick Road and west of Eagle Road. The applicant is now applying for a development modification to expand onto 3100 N. Centrepoint Way, which is where VillaSport was initially planned to be built.
The Centerpointe applicant says the VillaSport conditional use permit has expired. In addition to the 99,000 square foot gym property, there’s a 15,300 square foot plat for a proposed retail building at the site where Centerpointe wants to expand.
BoiseDev reported here that VillaSport recently acquired Treasure Valley gym chain Axiom Fitness. Axiom has locations off of Fairview and Parkcenter in Boise and at the Village, and off of Terrace Way in Meridian.
VillaSport said it still plans to build large locations in the Treasure Valley.
Centerpointe would add about 9,600 square feet of commercial development and 259 multi-family residences to Meridian.
“The intent of this designation is to “integrate a variety of uses together, including residential, and to avoid predominantly single-use development such as a regional retail center with only restaurants and other commercial uses,” the application letter said.
The commercial space would be in two buildings lining Eagle Rd. The multi-family component would include three four-story and two three-story residential buildings along with two leasing/amenity buildings.
The apartment would be a mix of studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units.
Amenities include a clubhouse, pedestrian pathway system, fitness center, pool and spa, pet spa, and more.
There are 449 parking spaces proposed for the residential area, including 259 covered and 26 guest spots. The commercial area would have 20 spaces.
There is a city council meeting set for June 14, 2022 to review the project.
