PLEASANTON, CA -- Charter Properties, a Pleasanton, CA-based developer, and Leisure Sports Inc., owner and operator of ClubSport fitness resorts, will partner to build a 50,000-square-foot lifestyle fitness resort in Dublin, CA, the companies announced.

The upscale club will be located in The Promenade, situated within the 1,500-acre master planned community of Dublin Ranch. The Promenade is surrounded by medium-high and high-density residential neighborhoods. The 110,000-square-foot Charter Properties and Leisure Sports mixed-use project will include the fitness club plus retail and office space on the pedestrian-friendly main street of The Promenade.

The fitness club will feature upscale amenities and services, including eight dedicated studios for group exercise, yoga, Pilates and cycling. Personal training, wellness and nutrition counseling will be an integral part of the fitness services offered. A resort-style pool, plush locker rooms, a day spa with nine treatment rooms and a café with healthy menu options will also be included.

Leisure Sports will own and operate the facility, which has yet to be named. The new club will be a sister club of ClubSport Pleasanton, which has been in operation for 25 years.

All components of the project are currently in the design stage. Development plans will be submitted shortly to the City of Dublin. Construction is slated to begin in late 2008, and opening is expected in 2009.
