Hames Sharley is thrilled to be collaborating with Geon Property on the design of a fitness and health hub at the Fairfield Homemaker Centre in Townsville, Queensland.

Developers Geon Property has unveiled the $15 million project, The CO:UP, which is a first for Townsville and will include a 14m climbing wall that will meet an Olympic standard.

The CO:UP will be a place for people to socialise, network, exercise, refuel and relax in one of the city’s most beautifully appointed settings,” Geon Property development manager Glen Wright said.

“This multi-faceted precinct has already attracted a world-class climbing gym, the country’s largest swim school operator and is working to secure a dedicated mini-golf centre.

“In tandem with these high-quality facilities, The CO:UP will feature holistic practices such as like yoga and Pilates, spaces for allied health professionals and food and beverage opportunities committed to supporting health and wellbeing.”

Urban Climb, which currently operates some of the country’s largest bouldering venues, has signed up as the anchor tenant.
