The existing Northern Door Center already included the YMCA’s core program spaces such as a Lifestyle Center (fitness), a pool, a gymnasium, multi-purpose rooms and kids care spaces. It was not only a design goal to align the Center with the newly created vision but also to make it more “health seeker” friendly by expanding existing spaces to make them more comfortable while also adding a level of “warmth” throughout the entire facility. The concept was to reshuffle interior spaces to improve the member “welcome experience” and add expanded Lifestyle Center space, family locker rooms, and more social areas for the teens and the community. These changes will allow for meeting spaces to support Y programming such as LiveStrong, their many diverse social clubs, as well as important wellness offerings. This project is expected to start fundraising shortly.
