BlueFit announce partnership to operate private indoor pool in Melbourne’s west

BlueFit announce partnership to operate private indoor pool in Melbourne’s west
December 24, 2019

BlueFit has announced a new partnership with Victorian property developer Lotus Living that will see it introduce BlueFit Swimming to a new residents-only aquatic facility.

Responsible for adding thousands of new properties in the new Jubilee estate in Wyndham Vale in Melbourne’s west, Lotus Living has developed a $10 million new aquatic facility featuring a 25 metre pool, water slides and an aquatic playground

With Jubilee and Wyndham Vale located in one of the fastest-growing areas in Victoria with a significant number of new families expected to move into the estate and surrounding suburbs, BlueFit anticipates that its learn-to-swim program will be in “huge demand”.

When first announced in 2016, developer Lotus Living said it was the first of its kind in Australia. Project Director Daniel Smith said the approval was a significant milestone for the west.

Smith stated “this concept is an industry first and we want to continue to create a more unique community for our future residents.”

Noting that many facilities in estates were adult-focused, Smith advised “we wanted to do a family and kid-focused facility. We’ve got lots of new families and migrants coming into Wyndham Vale.

“Kids can learn to swim, have fun and people can meet their neighbours.”

More than 20,000 people are expected to move into the area’s 7000 houses built over 15 years.

Lotus Living also plan to develop a town centre with retail and commercial space, neighbourhood centre, child care centre and 77 hectares of parklands.
