Expansion plan may include diving well
BY VINCE FRATIANI
When Cleveland State University was building a new recreation center in 2005, a study laid out plans for adding a diving well on the plaza between Stilwell Hall and the Physical Education Building.
The concept of a diving well at CSU has its roots in the PE Building itself.
The three-level diving pavilion would be connectred to the natatorium. Seating was proposed for every level, with the lower level seating 408, the main level seating 321, and top level seating 155, including outdoor seating. The top level would include hospitality suites. Still considered a viable project, the diving well's original cost estimate was approximately $8.2 million.
Instead, the diving portions were integrated into the main pool. The resulting design makes it one of the “fastest pools” in the NCAA, according to the 2005 diving pavilion study report.
“NCAA swim meets need a diving well separate from the pool,” said Domenic Bellone, planner in the CSU Architect’s Office.
The project is awaiting private funding, according to Jack Boyle, vice president for business affairs and finance.
