With the owners of the Golden Gateway Tennis and Swim Club having recently acquired the Tennis Club at 645 Fifth Street, a facility that was once slated to be razed for condos to rise, the proposal for the 165-unit condo, retail, and fitness facility at 8 Washington Street has since shed its replacement tennis courts in favor of “an expanded $10 million outdoor aquatic center and a public children’s playground.”
From the Business Times:
In total, the project will have 29,000 square feet of public open space and parks and 40,000 square feet of recreation. The children’s playground will be 4,500 square feet and will be adjacent to a cafe with outdoor seating. The pool area will be 40 percent larger than what is currently at the club.
Golden Gateway members looking to play tennis would be shuttled in vans to the SoMa club.
