Now, project developers recently asked for more time.
“There is a time delay due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Health clubs have been shut down and those shutdowns have impacted this project,” Tamara Thomson of The Land Group wrote to the city.
“VillaSport is a resort-style athletic club and spa offering a unique combination of luxury amenities and the finest state-of-the-art equipment and programs for the entire family,” VillaSport representatives wrote in an application with the City of Meridian. “VillaSport offers a concierge approach to member service with a full calendar of fitness, sports, social, and educational programs and events for all ages.”
The project made headway in June 2020 after requesting a $2.485 million permit to start working on the complex. Now, VillaSport submitted a request to the City of Meridian for a 24-month project extension.
Meridian City Council originally approved the 114,300 square foot project in April 2019 and the approval would expire April 23, 2021, if the city does not grant VillaSport the extension.
VillaSport currently has locations in Oregon, Colorado, California and Texas.
