Columbus Centre Athletic Club Notice

Attention Members:

We would like to provide you with a further update on the temporary closure of the Women’s Health Club due to the flooding that occurred in August.

The extensive remediation process that was required is now complete, and we are preparing for the repair work to begin, which is scheduled for the week of September 24th. We estimate that the work will take approximately 3 – 4 weeks to complete, and that the Women’s Health Club will be reopened and fully operational before the end of October.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this process. The flood that impacted the Women’s Health Club, basement corridor, and basement squash courts also severely impacted the downtown core and other parts of Toronto. It was a highly unusual weather system, and we are taking additional measures to ensure we limit such risks for our properties in the future.

We will continue to provide you with updates when available.

Thank you.
Athletic Club Management
