JLL’s PDS team recently completed a two-phase, $18M project at the Parkway Community YMCA (formerly the West Roxbury YMCA). The project included the demolition of 16,000 square feet from an existing building, and the construction of a 24,000 square foot addition. The scope featured a renovated gymnasium, a new state-of-the-art fitness center, lobby, two new wellness studios and an extended parking area.
The renovations allowed for new initiatives including a teen fitness center, expanded child watch, senior programs, water therapy, handicapped access, youth sports and programs for children with special needs. The project was phased in order to keep the YMCA open and operational for members during renovations. Not only did the team accomplish this, but the YMCA was able to sell more memberships during construction.
The JLL PDS team included Michael Connelly, Frank Plati and Dermot Roe. This is the second project the team has delivered to the YMCA. In 2015, JLL completed a $30 million renovation to the historic YMCA located on Huntington Avenue in Boston.
