Site Tour: Dowd YMCA of Charlotte

October 18, 2018
8:30 AM - 10:00 AM

Dowd YMCA (Calhoun Conference Room)
400 E Morehead Street
Charlotte, NC 28202

The flagship, 7-level Dowd YMCA of Charlotte is undergoing a major renovation and expansion. The changes allow for the consolidation of the YMCA of Greater Charlotte offices, construction of a new 52,000 SF fitness center, the reconfiguration of existing wellness/fitness areas, a new circulation spine linking the new fitness center to the existing tower, the renovation of current spaces (locker rooms, child watch, offices, and lobby), and construction of a new 4-level parking deck across the street for 380 spaces.  A new glass-and-steel facade affords members views of Uptown Charlotte’s skyline.

Join us for breakfast and an exclusive tour of the Dowd YMCA of Charlotte provided by LS3P (Architect), Balfour Beatty (General Contractor) and the YMCA of Greater Charlotte. You don't want to miss it!
