Long Beach, City ofLong Beach, CA
The Belmont Olympic Plaza Pool project focused on the rehabilitation of the indoor 50-meter pool located in Long Beach, California. The team of MDM Architects, Moody-Nolan and Counsilman-Hunsaker performed an evaluation of the existing facility, met with numerous stakeholders, and gathered demographic information. Using this information, several
options for the future of the Belmont Olympic Plaza Pool were presented to the city. Options varied from basic renovation work to full replacement and enhancement. Each option focused on the goals of the city and the needs of the community.
Plans are now underway for the redevelopment of the Belmont Plaza Pool Facility; a valuable asset and icon for the city. Counsilman-Hunsaker, in association with Harley Ellis Devereaux and Hastings & Chivetta are leading the design of the new aquatic venue.
The new Belmont Aquatic Center will include an indoor 50-meter pool, an outdoor 50-meter pool, a 10-meter dive tower, a leisure pool, a therapy pool, and a spa. The new complex will host recreational swimming, competitive swimming, water polo, and diving events consistent with all local/regional/national requirements. Spectator seating will be provided for approximately 3,500 people through a combination of permanent and portable seating in the indoor and outdoor areas.
