New downtown YMCA is already welcome

After 18 months of construction, the new Robert D. Love Downtown YMCA is nearly completed. And it is looking great. The facility, located on North Market between Third and Central, will have a series of pre-opening activities during the next month before its official opening Dec. 10. The new 110,000-square-foot, glass-filled building is designed to be a beacon to the neighborhood and is expected to serve 30,000 people in the area. It is already a welcome addition to downtown.
