Momentum Indoor Climbing's Houston Bouldering Gym Slated to Open in 2017
Situated near the heart of downtown Houston in a retrofitted warehouse surrounded by art studios, local dining options and up-and-coming loft spaces, Momentum Silver Street will include 17,000 square feet of bouldering, a 4,000 square foot training area, and a 1,000 square foot enclosed cardio room. Momentum Silver Street is also designed to host major competitions and includes a world cup inspired sector, which is nearly two hundred feet long.
Other features include Momentum's signature "woody" training walls, a second-floor yoga studio that offers a zen-like experience with complete privacy and natural lighting, 1,800 square feet dedicated to children's climbing, social hangout zones and a full service climbing gear shop with experts to advise customers. Located within the campus of Silver Street studios, events such as live music and art festivals will bring additional variety and flavor to the experience of visiting the gym.
"We have spent years searching for the perfect urban location in Houston and we're thrilled that we have finally found it in the Washington Avenue Arts District. The 40,000 square foot building is extraordinary and we are confident that Momentum Silver Street will be the best bouldering gym in the world," said Jeff Pedersen, co-founder, and CEO of Momentum. "It's exciting to contribute to the vision of our landlord Steve Gibson of Silver Street and his business partners in further developing the area into Houston's hub of alternative activities, events, arts and entertainment."
Momentum Indoor Climbing broke ground in July 2016 on a full-service climbing gym in Katy, TX. Located at 25410 Katy Mills Parkway, Momentum Katy is approximately 25 miles west of downtown Houston. It will be
one of the largest indoor climbing facilities in the United States, offering guests 12,700 square feet of roped climbing, 6,950 square feet of bouldering, a 5,520 square foot training area, and a 2,800 square foot children's climbing and play zone.
Momentum Silver Street and Momentum Katy are both part of the first phase of the Salt Lake City-based brand's national expansion plan.
