In December, members approved the Sonoran Renovation Project with a total of 969 (64.6%) equity members voting in the affirmative of all ballots cast – and with a total of 1,500 equity members (75.4% of all those eligible to vote) casting ballots from October 27 – December 1, 2014.
The renovation will take the current Sonoran Clubhouse facility from approximately 25,000 to more than 42,600 square feet.
“This is an exciting time for the club” said Director of Tennis, Spa and Fitness, Matt Wooldridge. “I think members will enjoy the new fitness and spa experience that the expanded and redesigned space will offer.” Matt pointed out that the Sonoran staff is also looking forward to a bigger, more contemporary facility that will enable them to expand their classes and introduce more programming to members.
When completed, the new Sonoran Clubhouse will offer an increased fitness and training area, more group exercise space, an enhanced spa with a new manicure/pedicure salon, a quick-serve café, bigger locker rooms, new poolside restrooms and family locker rooms, a remodeled boutique, a more spacious Youth Activities Center and children’s grass play area, along with larger indoor and outdoor gathering spaces.
Construction will consist of two phases starting towards the end of the first quarter of 2015, as soon as construction permits are approved by the City of Scottsdale.
It’s estimated that renovation will be completed in 16 months. Please watch for construction progress updates and further communications as the renovation gets underway.
