January 25, 2022 – The $10.7 million multi-phased building renovation and addition enhances the outdated 1899 former school building that the YMCA acquired in the 1950’s. This was a Design-Build project and Murrays was once again proud to be selected as Mowery Construction’s Design Partner for this transformative project.
The facility was operational throughout the entire project which created a state-of-the-art fitness center; numerous multipurpose rooms for the community and classes including a teaching kitchen; and specialized studios for yoga and cycling. There is a new administration suite and a new childcare center which allows the Preschool program to increase enrollment by 30%.
The additions and renovations blend into the existing structure, improving overall functions. 81,181 gsf of energetic and fun interiors were designed by utilizing the YMCA’s branding color pallet, creating a new dynamic member experience. There are only three parts of the facility that remain like they were before the project: the gym, which was constructed in 1959; a racquetball court from 1974, and the eight-lane swimming pool that was built in 1987, although the swimming pool was renovated.
