Indoor sports facility planned in Manteca
indoor sports facility

Manteca could have a new sports facility by year’s end.

The City of Manteca has a permit application in review that is valued at $3 million for a 25,511-square-foot indoor sports facility at 450 Commerce Court behind Home Depot.

It is designed to serve as the go-to place for youth, high school and adult sports enthusiasts.

It will feature three full-size indoor basketball courts convertible to five volleyball courts. The facility could also be eventually used for other endeavors such as wrestling and indoor soccer.

The indoor sports complex will develop leagues for different sports teams that will be able to play in a dedicated facility designed for that purpose year round. Last year when the facility was before the Planning Commission the developer indicated he expected it to operate between 3 p.m. and midnight.

The site for the proposed indoor sports complex is one of only three parcels left to be developed in Spreckels Park except for those attached to an existing facility such as Frito-Lay that is set aside for future expansion.

ProLogis in 2018 purchased the parcel between American Modular System and J&M Equipment for a 304,390-square-foot distribution center. The other parcel adjacent to the historical plaza behind Chevron was sold to a Modesto investor who is planning on developing the site.

Work is now underway on the southwest corner of Commerce Court and Phoenix Drive for a car wash.


Target is continuing to

remodel Manteca store


Target is getting ready for additional remodeling of their Manteca store.

The city is reviewing a demolition permit for work valued at $115,786 for the store at 280 Spreckels Avenue.

It is the latest in a series of upgrades at the store.

Target has seen its comparable year-to-year sales from stores and digital operations rise nearly 21 percent over a 12-month period that ended with the fiscal quarter on Jan. 30. That record growth saw the full fiscal year revenue increase 20 percent to $93.6 billion.

Target followed that news by announcing it would ramp up store remodels by another $4 billion over the next four years.

Former truck yard

buildings being razed

An additional demolition permit being reviewed is to tear down 18,300 square feet of buildings along Woodward Avenue between Moffat Boulevard and Atherton Drive that up until recently had a trucking operation located there.

The property owner is pursuing plans for RV storage.


Auxiliary dwelling units

are also in the works

The City of Manteca has been seeing stepped up interest lately in the creation of auxiliary dwelling units.

There is an application in review for a free-standing house — or so-called granny flat — in the 800 block of West Yosemite that has a construction value of $120,000.

A second involves a garage conversion on Linden Way.
