As a destination community with residents from nearly 40 states, Willow Valley Communities faces high expectations in the area of cultural and wellness programming. The 80,000 SF Cultural Center is the hub of world class amenities and a multitude of programs designed to engage the mind, body and spirit of the communities’ residents. In this vibrant two-story space, residents are able to swim laps at the aquatic center, pamper themselves at the day spa, grab a quick lunch at the Vitality Café or see a touring Broadway show in the 500 seat theater.
With baby boomers on the way, Willow Valley Communities engaged CCS Building Group to renovate the 42,000 SF vitality level of the Cultural Center. While the entire lower level received an update, the spa and rehabilitation center underwent the most notable structural changes. The lobby, fitness center, pool locker rooms and café also underwent significant interior renovations. One of the more innovative elements included the addition of a Himalayan salt wall to the spa. Himalayan salt is both visually stunning and is known for it’s many healing properties. In addition, a glass transom was added to the café to maximize natural light. CCS Building Group completed this renovation through its signature design/build project delivery method.
