Renovations of Eagle Pointe Recreation Center Takes Flight
Commerce City celebrated the start of the Eagle Pointe Recreation Center renovation with a smashing community event and ceremonial kickoff Sunday. Interior construction activities begin February 12, with renovations to the lobby and entryway affecting building access.
“These long-planned improvements to the Eagle Pointe Recreation Center marked the start of the final project promised to residents in the five-year capital improvement program approved in 2013,” said Mayor Sean Ford. “We thank our community for voting to make these improvements happen and for their flexibility during construction.”
The renovation adds approximately 6,000 square feet of additional space, including a new therapy pool, new family locker rooms, expanded fitness areas, community meeting spaces, a new technology lab, improved restrooms, locker rooms, and a relocated steam room. The renovation offers a bold and modern design, refreshing the 30-year-old facility in a way that reflects the input of more than 800 community members.
Preliminary construction and utility activities occurred in 2017, but patrons will see big changes February 12, as renovations begin in the lobby, senior bathrooms and entryway. During this four-month period, facility users will need to access Eagle Pointe from the north entrance closest to Parkway Drive. Beginning in June, construction will close access to locker rooms, fitness areas, and the indoor pool. Patrons will be able to use programs at Paradice Island Pool and the new Bison Ridge Recreation Center. The $17 million project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2018.
This is the final project in Commerce City’s five-year, voter-approved capital improvement program, which added three new parks, the outdoor Paradice Island Pool , the widening of Tower Road, and the new Bison Ridge Recreation Center currently under construction. Eagle Pointe Recreation Center will work as a cohesive system with the new Bison Ridge Recreation Center, providing the community with comprehensive recreation activities. Located at the northeast corner of E. 112th Avenue and Potomac Street, the new 108,000-square-foot facility is expected to open late spring.
Commerce City selected Essenza Architecture for project design and Golden Triangle Construction as the construction manager/general contractor. Safety is a concern during construction and caution is advised with construction signs posted throughout the area. Patrons will be notified when closures, delays or alternate options occur.
