Ballard's New Gym
The address of the new location is 1415 NW 52nd St. The entrance and parking is off 51rst street. If you are lost and/or need help finding the gym, feel free to call us at 206.782.1496
Here's the location:
The new gym will have a gigantic pit, changing rooms, bigger bathrooms, three runways, a preschool area, three in-ground trampolines, a full set of women's and men's artistic gymnastics gear, all the TNT gear, two floor exercise areas, two sets of uneven bars, offices for the coaches, expansion potential and a barrel-vault ceiling. We've engaged Ecco Design to run interference with the city and design the facility -- Troy Hussing's girl attends the Ballard gym. Move-in date -- not guaranteed given permitting issues -- is during the July 4th break. Our contractor, D&E Construction swears they will have it ready by then despite the size of the pits and the elaborate seismic retrofit we're putting in. All in all, this is quite a project -- about $350,000 or so, plus or minus. Wish us luck and thanks for coming to SGA and giving us the wherewithal to build a gym like this!
