A company that specializes in building custom trampoline parks has gotten construction off the ground to give State College families a bounce in their step.
Get Air launched a Facebook page in 2016 for its State College location, which was initially intended to be at Nittany Mall. The plan required the use of three storefronts and about 16,000 square feet, but fell through. The company began to look into other options in Happy Valley in 2017.
The company’s new home at 2252 E. College Ave. is at last seeing movement toward construction after the Centre Region Code Administration recently approved plans at the location for internal demolition. The space next to Giant is 23,500 square feet, according to Pyramid Group’s website. Pyramid group leases the retail property at Nittany Commons.
Development plans were recently reviewed by CRCA Commercial Plans Examiner Ned Liggett who said there are a few issues that Get Air’s design team would need to address for approval. He said it was not “uncommon” for design teams to have to submit revised plans.
Never miss a local story.
One issue, according to Liggett, is that the trampoline platforms are made of wood in a non-combustible building.
“You can’t do that,” he said.
Sky Zone was announced as a new business in 2015, but the company’s corporate site has since removed Happy Valley as a future location. Get Air has also been unable to jump-start a business.
