The NE Bronx YMCA opened to the public on 9/9/2021. Marvel and the YMCA’s newest facility in the Northeast Bronx is a project decades in the making. Community activists and politicians have been working together for over thirty years to create this focal point for the entire neighborhood—a space that would allow all ages to gather, learn, and play. Located alongside NYCHA’s Baychester and Edenwald Houses, this new dynamic YMCA campus took inspiration from the site’s original forested land. A glass corridor seamlessly connects the three main pavilions, which are all situated around a central courtyard, preserving and celebrating the existing trees that enhance this unique building in a natural gesture. The YMCA building also includes two swimming pools, a gymnasium, wellness center, teaching kitchen, rooftop garden, childcare, group exercise studios, and sub-dividable community and multipurpose rooms. The outcome of a holistic design and construction process, the new YMCA both nurtures its occupants and touches the earth lightly, providing a shining example of the good that can come when our leaders, institutions, and community work together.
