Columbia Athletic Clubs and Freiheit & Ho Architects announce that construction is nearing completion on the renovation of the aquatics center of the Columbia Athletic Club – Juanita Bay location.

The neighborhood athletic club will soon offer its members a state-of-the-art Aquatic Center to compliment the range of fitness amenities offered. When complete, a 25 yard lap pool, 17 yard family/teaching/therapy pool, hot tub and family changing rooms will enhance members’ health and fitness routines. Designed to create a welcoming environment, 20 foot ceilings and large windows will channel soft natural light into the space.
