San Diego Baldwin & Sons has completed construction of a $10 million dormitory at the 155-acre Chula Vista Elite Training Center.
The 2,500 square-foot dormitory will add 100 beds to the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic training site at 2800 Olympic Parkway, which had 180 beds.
The new dormitory will be named after Al Baldwin, founder and CEO of Baldwin & Sons, and his wife, Deann.
The two-story building includes 30 suites that are a mix of two bedroom, two bathroom units and four-bedroom, two bathroom units. About half of the suites are designed to accommodate para-athletes.
Baldwin said the new dormitory was needed because of “the high demand for onsite accommodations.”
“Now, more athletes will have state-of-the-art facilities to not only train, but to live in as well,” Baldwin said.
The new dormitory suites feature wood-style plank flooring, roller shade window coverings, quartz countertops, Moen chrome fixtures, custom cabinetry, microwave ovens, mini-refrigerators and 50-inch Sony smart televisions.
Wi-Fi access is available in all of the suites and common areas.
The dormitory also has two commercial-grade laundry rooms, key-card access systems, security cameras, three conference rooms with audio-visual equipment, and an upstairs open-air deck with patio tables and chairs.
