The new lobby area will offer a warm and inviting interior with drip lights over a new front reception desk, an expanded kids play area and additional seating.

For now, please continue to enter through the south door, using the stairs to access the second floor. A temporary front desk area is at the top of the stairs. The elevator is also available. Press the button on the first floor and a team member will assist you.


The multipurpose gym will be reinvented as a new, expanded fitness zone, to include 9,300 square feet of exercise space, indoor turf, 24 all-new video monitors and a new array of best-in-class fitness equipment. The new design will accommodate more guests, even with current social distancing protocols in place. The entire renovation should be complete this Spring.
