YIMBY has the reveal for renderings of a new fitness center at the Windsor Park Co-Op Center, in Bayside, Queens. Permits were filed for the expansion last week. The project will service the roughly 5,000 residents living within the 46-acre community. Its nearest mass-transit is the LIRR train station at Queens Village, a ten-minute drive or fifteen-minute bus ride.
The Windsor Park Owners Corp will be responsible for the development.
The 5,830 square-foot structure will include an open area with aerobic machines, and two rooms for exercise and spin classes.
The minimalist redbrick design allows for large windows to flood the complex with light. The building is being designed so that it can meet the standards of the international Passive House guidelines. It is expected to use 90% less energy than what city codes dictate.
The Manhattan-based Allen + Killcoyne Architects will be responsible for the design.
After the permits have been accepted, the project will be expected to be finished within nine months. The hope is for construction to start in late winter/early spring.
