A first look at the climbing walls of Sender One Westwood.
Our fourth location and second bouldering-only facility will reside in the historic Westwood Village. Slated to open later this year, this 8,000 sf climbing center will also include a 2,000 sf upstairs mezzanine with training boards, fitness, and yoga. We are currently in the permitting process and hope construction will begin in early spring!
Introducing the Sender One Westwood location logo (left), plus a mini-sneak peek of the space (not entirely to scale), specifically the design of the climbing walls provided by Walltopia. The inspiration behind Sender One Westwood's logo and walls focuses on the uniqueness of the original space, the Mann Festival Theatre (think film strips, directional lighting, projectors) which opened in 1969, 40 years after being one of the first six buildings in the Westwood Village area in 1929. It was actually the first Ralphs supermarket store! The theatre has remained vacant since 2009 after it permanently closed.
We're honored and thrilled to bring life to this historic building. The wall designs and the interior will preserve a theatre-like feel. We're even keeping the marquee at the entrance to pay tribute to the once-popular Westwood venue.
We look forward to creating new climbing experiences in the Westwood Village neighborhood and serving our existing community.
