| March 19, 2014 | 0 Comments

Boston –  JLL’s Project and Development Services group is providing project management services for the YMCA of Greater Boston’s expansion at their West Roxbury facility. The West Roxbury YMCA serves over 10,000 members of the surrounding communities. The $15 million project will update the 61-year-old facility with the demolition of 16,000 square feet from an existing building, and the construction of a 24,000-square-foot addition.

The project includes a renovated gymnasium, a new state-of-the art fitness center, a new lobby, two wellness studios and an extended parking area. The current facility is undergoing a complete renovation and space reallocation to better accommodate existing programs. It will also allow for new initiatives such as a teen fitness center, expanded child watch, senior programs, water therapy, handicapped access, as well as youth sports and programs for children with special needs.

The outdated indoor swimming pool is being replaced with a new aquatic center that will include lap and family pools, and enable expanded instruction for youth and adults, with areas for training, competitions and instruction. It will also enable the YMCA to meet the increasing demand for water therapy for older populations.

The Boston Redevelopment Authority recently approved the project, which is being designed by architect LINEA 5 Inc., with electrical engineer ZAX Engineering and M/E/P/FP engineer VAV International. It will create approximately 250 construction jobs. Construction is scheduled to being in Spring 2014 and complete in Summer 2015.
