The Steve Nash Sports Club on Granville St. is the basketball superstar’s latest initiative in promoting an active lifestyle that doesn’t step on Vancouverites’ green values—too much.
The health haven, which opened in Spring 2007, has bamboo lockers, floors made from recycled car tires and energy efficient lighting and cardio machines. Only one problem: every machine in this $5-million, 38,500-square-foot realm for the ripped comes equipped with its own television set. We can overlook this, perhaps: apparently, Nash’s design green met the standards set by the LEED rating system for commercial interiors.
See, even gym junkies can be green!
