Aquatics Center could be headed to Gastonia mall

October 2019

On Tuesday night, Gastonia City Council members will also take up an issue that involves the potential construction of an aquatics center. They are expected to approve a 'memorandum of understanding' with a developer that wants to buy Eastridge Mall and keep the core structure intact, while bringing new mixed uses to the outer portions of the roughly 50-acre site.

One of the key components of that redevelopment package is the construction of a 40,000-square-foot 'aquatic sports and entertainment facility,' with the option to expand to 60,000 square feet. That's according to the city, as well as U.S. Developments, the Charlotte firm working to acquire the mall and breathe new life into it.
