Newly Renovated YMCA Will Open Doors Soon

Newly Renovated YMCA Will Open Doors Soon

During the planning process the YMCA board and staff used templates to determine the space they needed to fulfill and grow.

"It certainly wasn’t 100,00 square feet we were spending all of our resources on heat and reparis. Certainly the 38,000 sq. ft. is even above what the template would have shown so we would have had extra space and now we are able to use that and again going back to that fulfilling a need that the community is requiring," CEO of Sioux Falls Family YMCA, Mike Gulick said.

The need the city has identified is affordable housing.

"One of the missions of the YMCA is to fill a need and so if affordable housing is a need that the community has identified and we can get some families out of some substandard housing and into some brand new affordable housing units. I think that's part of the mission that we are accomplishing," Gulick said.

And now that phase one of the of project is near completion, they can turn their focus to phase two.

"It will be a 52 unit apartment building when it's finished basically everything on this side now gets demoed and part of the building comes down there will be a small section of parking lot on the back. We have a lot apartment buildings going up we have build several in the last few years right here downtown and we have two more going up on Phillips and Minnesota," Lloyd Construction worker, Chris Johnson said.

At this time, the end date for the completion of phase two has yet to be decided. The downtown Sioux Falls YMCA is expected to open their doors by Friday if the sidewalk is completed.
