SwimMAC’s plans to build a new aquatic center at LangTree Lake Norman in Mooresville just got a little easier.
On Thursday, Pharos Hospitality, a Charlotte-based hotel developer, announced its $500,000 gift to the SwimMAC Carolina fundraising campaign would go toward the construction of the new aquatic center. The center will likely include a 50-meter competition pool, a training pool and seating for more than 1,500 spectators.
Pharos Hospitality is in the pre-construction phase of the development of a DoubleTree hotel at LangTree, which will be located adjacent to the planned aquatic center.
SwimMAC’s $6 million fundraising campaign kicked off in May 2014 at the Mecklenburg County Aquatic Center where it was hosting the Arena Grand Prix at Charlotte.

In addition to building the new aquatic center, SwimMAC plans to use funds to renovate and expand the training center on Providence Road and improve other community-based facilities, said Angel Trimble, a spokesperson for SwimMAC.
