“Raising The Roof” At The Brandywine YMCA

Big things are happening at the Brandywine YMCA! The vertical expansion project is well underway and we have also had a change in branch leadership.

Phase one (of three) of the construction project is finished, and we have welcomed members back into the front lobby, movement studio, preschool rooms and babysitting area – much of which has a new look and feel. Currently, there is a massive steel structure resting on the roof of the original YMCA. By late spring, this will be the brand new fitness center and another movement studio (phase two of our project).

The last phase of the expansion will include a renovation of the first floor existing fitness center, which will be converted to the new babysitting area, youth wellness center, spinning room and movement studio.

Stay tuned for more updates on our progress as we are currently slated for completion in the summer of 2018.
