A multi-million dollar volleyball complex with a restaurant and bar in downtown West Carrollton is pushing back its expected opening date for the second time.
Miami Valley Sand has announced the opening of its 82,000 square foot indoor/outdoor facility is not expected to be Nov. 1, “but we plan to open as soon as possible,” according to the developer.
Earlier this year officials said they expected to open Nov. 1 instead of the Oct. 1 target date.
The $4.3 million project has been slowed by construction delays, according to Miami Valley Sand Facebook page.
The facility is being built on 6.6 acres of West Central Avenue land the city agreed to sell to the owners of of Spike-It LLC, which operates a similar site in Cincinnati.
The developer has said the site is expected to draw between 300 and 500 people a night and – during peak times of the year – employ as many as 50 people in the heart of downtown.
Miami Valley Sand will include 17 sand courts and more than 300 parking spaces, records show. The indoor facility would include 44,000 square feet, nine sand courts, a restaurant and bar, heat, fans, and 20 large garage doors to regulate the air flow, officials have said.
Outdoor facilities would feature eight sand courts, showers, restrooms, a bar with food service and a 36-foot wide deck, officials said.
