The Plunge at Belmont Park, which closed in February 2014 for a serious remodel, is now headed for a complete tear-down and reconstruction, and not very quickly, according to Nick Biancamano of Pacifica Enterprises, which holds the lease on the city-owned property.
“We are committed to this project and to doing it right,” Biancamano said. “We are still waiting to get the permits from the city we need to get started.”
Pacifica won the unanimous support of the Mission Beach Precise Planning Board for the restoration project in 2013, with a plan that would involve building a largely glass-and-aluminum building with a retractable roof to replace the old structure. The new building will be identical in size to the former 21,000-square-foot building that stands 48 feet high.
