900 Worcester’s Ice Rinks, Swimming Pools and Playing Fields
As may of us know, the Town of Wellesley approved a $3.8M purchase of the 7.85 acre property and started on plans to convert 900 Worcester Project into a recreation area featuring a pool, ice skating rinks, and playing fields.
You can learn more from the Wellesley Townsman article, but highlights are that Wellesley Sports Center, LLC will develop “two NHL size hockey rinks, 10 lanes (25 yards) lengthwise to bulkhead, plus three lanes (25 yards) widthwise and a smaller (50′ x 25′) warm water teaching/therapy pool, an indoor 90′ x 150′ (suitable for 7v7 high school soccer) turf field, fitness area with physical therapy (4,800 sf) and strength and conditioning (6,600 sf).”
This is exciting for many in town. However, we need to think about how this building can be built and run in a manor that will assist Wellesley to meet its goal to reduce its carbon footprint by 25%.
