SAN DIEGO – Cassidy Turley BRE Commercial, San Diego’s market leader in commercial real estate services, and Waterworks Aquatics, Orange County’s number one Swim School and Aquatics Center, today announced that Waterworks Aquatics has purchased the industrial building at 2704 Gateway Road in Bressi Ranch for $1.2 million. The company is scheduled to open its new state-of-the-art indoor swim facility on April 28.
The swim school totals 8,700 square feet and will serve the City of Carlsbad and all of North San Diego County. Waterworks obtained a conditional use permit from the city to construct the newly built swim facility.
In an effort to promote water safety, Waterworks Aquatics teaches more than 5,000 children to swim each year at its Orange County location. The new Carlsbad location will provide swimming lessons year round, including Private, Semi-Private, Parent and Me, Adult and Stroke Clinic swim classes. It will also offer youth swim teams, summer swim camps, lap swimming, masters swim team, water aerobics, aquatic therapy, and act as a venue for birthday parties. Classes are offered in two pools, a lap pool heated to 89 degrees and a teaching pool headed to 92 degrees, for children and adults ages three months and older.
“The teaching methodology at Waterworks Aquatics is what differentiates us from other swim schools,” said Jon Alpert, founder of Waterworks Aquatics. “We utilize an original instructional philosophy of teaching children to roll to their back for a breath rather than lifting their heads to breathe, which allows children as young as 18 months the capability to swim across the pool. The other key component is the use of a specialized muscle memory teaching technique, where students are taught stroke technique at a very young age.”
With a commitment to “Learning it the Right Way, Right from the Beginning”, Waterworks Aquatics was voted the best swim school in Orange County in 2009 and 2010 by the readers of Parenting OC Magazine.
The company will hold its Grand Opening Ceremony on Saturday, May 7 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. The event will feature food, beverages and water activities. Various discounts and special services will be offered upon the facility’s opening as well.
Dennis Visser and Aric Starck of Cassidy Turley BRE Commercial represented both Waterworks Aquatics and LJR, LLC, the seller, in the transaction.
