For a facility called “The Epic,” it has to be epic from the moment you enter the front door. So, for this week’s First Take, we’ll take a look at the Epic Atrium.
You may have heard us refer to The Epic and Epic Waters as a “cruise ship on land” – meaning we will have something for everyone. And, if you’ve ever been on a cruise, you know just how amazing these ships’ atriums can be. They are a common area for everyone, a gathering place, a place to listen to the occasional live music, or a place to sit, relax, read, or visit with friends. These atriums are “wow” areas. This was the inspiration when designing The Epic.
With tall, curved, three-story glass windows, members and guests will have an awesome 180-degree view of the Grand Lawn, amphitheater, and lake. Inside the atrium, will be a concierge and check-in desk where you will be greeted and offered a tour of the facility. The atrium will feature Epic Reads, a high-tech library where guests will be able to check out a book, sit, and read. Or, relax, listen and watch the DJ’s in the Epic Internet Radio Booth. Looking up from your comfortable chair, you might see runners on the two-level indoor track, which will have wonderful views of the action on the courts as well as around the Epic building. The Atrium will also have a dramatic view of the Epic courts, featuring basketball, volleyball, pickleball and futsol, the fastest growing international sport.
On the second level is the Epic Overlook where you can look down on the activities in the atrium or see the occasional musician playing a guitar or keyboard. Also on the second story overlooking the atrium will be Crompton’s, a two-room lounge that will be available for rent for parties and gatherings.
As of this week, contractors are beginning to install glass in various areas of the building and drywall is beginning to go up in some of the interior spaces.
Stay tuned for next week’s First Take as we will have more new, exciting photos from The Epic!
