A Westfield-based company is looking to build a $14 million health and fitness complex in Pendleton. Our partners at The Herald Bulletin report the Pendleton Town Council has approved an incentive package for Klipsch-Card Athletic Facilities LLC to build the 115,000-square-foot Community Sports and Wellness Center.
The $3.2 million incentive package, the publication says, includes the donation of 25 acres of land, $1 million in town funding for construction costs, and an additional $1.45 million to be paid in monthly installments over 15 years. Town Council President Robert Jones calls the project a positive one that will help businesses and restaurants in the area.
The facility will include eight indoor tennis courts, gymnasium space for other sports, classrooms for instruction and small activities such as weight training and yoga, and about 10,000 square feet of space to be operated by Community Hospital Anderson for wellness programs and classes. It will also serve as the new home for Anderson Gymnastics and Cheer, which will be rebranded as DeBertrand Gymnastics.
The complex is expected to open early next year.
