Permits have been filed for a three-story YMCA at 1250 East 229th Street, in Edenwald, The Bronx. The site is five blocks away from the Baychester Avenue subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. The non-profit New York City Economic Development Corporation is listed as behind the applications.
The organization is focused on promoting infrastructure, unlocking ‘human capital,’ leveraging city assets to promote innovation, improving business growth, and developing the city’s global influence.
The 35-foot-tall structure will yield 52,694 square feet of community facilities, with 51,000 square feet dedicated to 150 parking spaces, and space for storing eight bicycles. The building will have multipurpose rooms, playrooms, kitchens, swimming pools, gymnasium, exercise rooms, and a rooftop terrace.
Marvel Architects is listed as responsible for the design, with a special focus on integrated landscaping into the YMCA campus.
Groundbreaking is expected by December 2018, with completion expected by 2020.
