We are looking forward to the new YMCA opening in December 2023! The construction remains on budget and on schedule. Throughout February, major milestones will include:
- Completion of the gymnasium walls in the NW corner of the building.
- Installation of the Aquatics Center's roof.
- Preparation of the forms for the lap pool's concrete pour.
- Installation of the roof over the group exercise rooms along the East side of the building.
- Beginning work for the final exterior walls along the South side of the building. These walls will enclose the drop-in childcare rooms, STEM learning lab, teen space and the PeaceHealth Wellness Center.
The new Y is well on its way to opening THIS YEAR (December 2023)! Last month, the most noticeable change was the rising of the large walls along 24th and Hilyard.
Throughout January, you will continue to see the exterior dimensions of the new Y take shape as large walls are completed along the southern and western sides of the Y. Major milestones this month will include the completion of the gymnasium’s exterior walls and the installation of structural steel components for the 2nd floor and the roof.
November saw the new YMCA start to rise out of the ground! The 35-foot tall wall on the north side of the Aquatics Center is clearly visible along 24th Avenue. Throughout the Y, the walls will continue to rise over the next several weeks. Many of the under-slab plumbing and electrical components have been installed as we prepare to start building internal systems.
In the photo below, you can see the tall wall in the background that runs along 24th Avenue and next to the future Y pools and the walls framing the preschool rooms in the foreground.
The new YMCA has now been under construction for roughly four and a half months. Over the past few weeks, the concrete slabs for much of the first floor have been poured, including the critical pour of the slab for the gymnasium. In this image the area in yellow is where the locker rooms will be located. This concrete will be poured the first week of November. Throughout November the community will really start to see progress on the YMCA as the walls start rising up. We are about 13 months away from opening the new YMCA!
You may have noticed the exterior wall of the new Y are beginning to be constructed, beginning around the Y's future pool. As of now, most of the plumbing and utilities have been laid underground in preparation for pouring the concrete slab, which will be the floor of the new Y. Pouring the slab will commence with the gym floor in the Northwest corner of the lot during the week of October 17.
We are thrilled to be just over two months into the new Y’s construction!
As you drive by the site, you can see that extensive work is taking place. Perhaps the most noticeable item is the large hole that has been dug along 24th Avenue for the pool.
Footings are being poured for the exterior walls and over the next few weeks the perimeter fences will be moved out toward 24th and Hilyard in order to facilitate new sidewalks and perimeter trees.
In October, the exterior walls will start going up and by February 2023 the roof will be on!
You may have noticed the concrete forms for the pool went up this month!
Progress continues towards building the New Y's foundation: rebar is being placed and concrete is being poured when you see the machine pictured here!
The new Y site continues to be leveled and graveled except where there is a HUGE hole for the future Aquatics Center!
The Aquatics Center features a 6-lane lap pool, a warm-water pool, a hot tub and a splash pad for toddlers.
We held our public groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, June 23. The ceremony was an incredible display of community, collaboration, support and preparation for the future! We have thousands of donors, members, staff and friends of the Y to thank for getting the new Y to groundbreaking! Scroll through the photo gallery below to see more!
Chambers Construction started working the following day. They will spend the next few weeks prepping the site for the building. That includes dump trucks arriving at the site every 10 minutes to remove debris!
