Permit package Submitted



Moving Forward

After months of of hard work, our Design and Construction Committee have submitted the Swim Club permitting package to the City of Houston. A significant amount of time and effort went into preparing the engineering drawings for city review, hopefully minimizing back-and-forth and expediting the process. We’re moving into a more detailed design phase and are beginning to narrow down the materials and finishes for the pools and pool house, a few examples below.

We continue to distribute Membership Agreements and collect Deposits signing up the remaining few member families before reaching our 360 member cap. We are moving through the waitlist and beginning the membership process for those interested. Be on the lookout for communication from lodge88swimclub@gmail.com if you’re near the top!

Sign up for the wait list or check your spot in line below!

Approved timeline

We’re on a tight schedule in order to be swimming by Memorial Day 2020. We’ve completed our construction drawings and submitted our permitting package to the city. The permitting process is anticipated to take several months, ideally being approved by November 2019 allowing us to begin construction. We’re still on track for opening Memorial Day, Summer of 2020.

Site development

The Design and Construction Committee has run through multiple iterations of the site layout optimizing budget and space, while satisfying the members vision. The site layout has been approved and is pictured below. Many of the specifics details on materials and finishes are now being worked out. The pools and pool house permits have been submitted and below is a fair representation of the pool area in the draft submission.
