The new single story 56,000 SF YMCA has a wide range of program spaces including a gym with a stage, an elevated indoor track, TRX training area, wellness area, aerobics rooms, spin room, afterschool program spaces for recreation and computer training, childcare spaces, an indoor 8-lane pool, administrative spaces, community spaces, and locker rooms.
The site is a 34-acre parcel located on Cane Bay Boulevard in Berkley County, SC. The previously undeveloped site contains open fields, hardwood vegetation, and a creek along the rear of the property. The site development included the 56,000 SF facility (with room for future expansion), entry drive / drop-off, 390 parking spaces, multi-purpose fields, tennis courts, baseball and softball fields, and a walking trail.
A unique feature is a local library branch within the YMCA that includes a reading room, multi-purpose area, community room, homework room, and study areas. An additional tenant space is available for future retail or a small business, such as a rehab or wellness company. The exterior design utilizes a modern, pre-engineered metal building system, abundant natural daylighting, and a Lowcountry design aesthetic with standing seem metal roof and deep overhangs.
