The Riverside Board of Supervisors gave unanimous approval for the construction of the Thermal Beach Club. The one billion dollar project by WhiteStar Development will feature private residences surrounding a 20-acre lagoon powered by American Wave Machines, PerfectSwell® wave-making technology. Sandy beaches and a boardwalk will encompass the lagoon bringing the feel of the ocean to the desert.
The Thermal Beach Club will bring a bright future to the Eastern Coachella Valley. Although ground breaking is 12-18 months away, it promises jobs, tax revenue, tourists, infrastructure upgrades to benefit the community which has been hard-hit by the pandemic. Notable too, WhiteStar Development will be giving $2,300 per home built to the local community that they can use as they see fit--estimated to be $749,800.
