Las Vegas Athletic Clubs plans to build its eighth fitness center at Union Village, the massive health care complex under construction in Henderson, the company announced today.
The new 85,000-square-foot facility’s amenities — similar to LVAC locations across the Las Vegas Valley — will include an indoor running track, indoor pool, women’s-only training area, spa, steam and sauna room, children’s playroom, racquetball courts and space for group fitness classes.
The company plans to break ground later this year.
The fitness center will sit on 10 acres of land on Union Village’s main promenade, officials said. The 170-acre project site is across the street from Cowabunga Bay, near Galleria Drive and U.S. 95.
Union Village developers have retained Mission Capital Advisors to raise the $95 million needed for development of a 125-bed skilled nursing facility, 40-bed long-term acute care hospital and 360-unit continuing care retirement community.
When Union Village is fully built out over the next decade or so, developers expect the master-planned community to contain four parts:
• Union Centre: a hospital complex and health center.
• Union Plaza: a speciality retail center with entertainment, medical offices, all-suite hotel and residential apartments.
• Union Place: a senior retirement community.
• Union Park: a civic and cultural arts center.
The $1.2 billion project, billed by developers as the first integrated health village, has been years in the making. Developers and Henderson officials first unveiled plans in April 2011.
Dirt finally moved in October when Valley Health System broke ground on what will be called Henderson Hospital, featuring 142 acute-care beds. The first phase of construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.
