Posted August 08, 2018 12:25:19 The first outdoor diving gear box to be designed and built in the United States, a 3-person terrarium filled with more than 600 pounds of underwater gear, is set to open in New York City on Tuesday, according to the maker of the box.
Jack’s diving equipment terrarium, which will open Tuesday at 8 p.m., will feature a 300-pound box, said Michael Pecoraro, who co-founded Jacks diving gear.
It will feature one of the first indoor spaces for indoor diving, and a $300 price tag.
The terrarium will feature three large doors that open to a larger, 2,000-square-foot room, which is equipped with a bar, an outdoor water cooler and a diving gear rack.
The terrarium has been in development for about a year, with Peceraro’s company working with a New York State licensing agency to get the necessary permits.
The company said it has received about 10,000 bids.
The Jacks terrarium is one of a handful of outdoor diving equipment boxes expected to open this summer.
Others include a diving locker designed to go in a home, and one for a small office.
The latter has been built in San Francisco for about $60,000.
In September, a company called Aquarium, Inc. announced it had won the right to open a similar outdoor facility in New Jersey.
