Mayor Muriel Bowser this week announced that her administration has entered into an agreement with the Therme Group to bring a new health and wellness destination to Washington, DC
Therme, which already operates four sites in Germany and Romania, is seeking to expand and spread its footprints in the USA starting with a DC-Maryland-Virginia region for a facility. Therme develops, designs, and operates large-scale wellbeing oases that combine thermal bathing, sauna treatments, and family-friendly water-based features.
The new DC location is expected to bring 7,200 construction jobs over a two-year period, 700 to 800 permanent operations jobs upon facility stabilization, and an estimated $1.1 billion in nominal tax revenue flow over 25 years.
We are thrilled to work together and take the first step to bring Therme’s revolutionary wellbeing concept to the U.S. The cultural wealth and diversity of the nation’s capital makes it the perfect place to introduce the United States to our holistic model of urban recreation and rejuvenation. We look forward to collaborating with the community and District leaders to develop a civic asset that connects Washingtonians and visitors alike with a new approach to health, nature, and community. -Omar Toro-Vaca, Chief Development Officer, Therme Group US.
