The upgraded Showers Drive 24-hour fitness center will offer a new pool, steam room, sauna, group studio, and additional workout space. In total, Newell estimates that the club will measure around 35,000 square feet and will be equivalent to a more functional space than either of the two existing clubs. For comparison, the California Street club’s square footage is in the “under 30s,” Newell said.

“This will be more than capable of accommodating all of the existing members of these two clubs in Mountain View, and also more than enough to accommodate new members as well,” he said.

The fitness chain has several locations in the South Bay area with approximately 10,000 members.

As 24 Hour Fitness moves forward with its own building plans, plans for the Los Alto School District to add a 10th campus in the mall become clearer.

Over the past decade, the district has attempted to solve an “overcrowding problem” by adding a new campus. In 2019, as part of a complex deal involving a $ 150 million bond measure and the use of Development Rights Transfer (TDR), the district purchased 11.7 acres of property in San Merchant Square. Antonio.

The site purchased by the Los Altos School District will be the future headquarters of a new school campus.

But the district does not plan to open its school until 2025, a schedule that was set in January last year at a school board meeting. When the Los Altos School District Board of Directors met in October, Deputy District Superintendent Randy Kenyon said the campus would be a two-story building with around 900 students.

Keyon could not be reached for comment at the time of posting.
