Architecture and engineering projects that reshaped the landscape in 2019

With construction in full swing at the corner of Fourth and Carpenter streets, Springfield’s newest YMCA facility is set to rejuvenate lives in Springfield’s medical district, creating a link between the Enos Park neighborhood to downtown and beyond.  According to executive director Angie Sowle, since breaking ground in March 2019, the 88,000-square-foot building has stayed “on schedule, just like clockwork.”

Under the principal leadership of Paul Wheeler of FWAI, the new two- story facility will replace the outdated downtown YMCA  and compliment the west-side Kerasotes YMCA facility at 4550 W. Iles Ave.

“Designing a building with focused programing to serve the urban core became a focal point of our three-year strategic plan in 2017,” Sowle said. Very quickly, Memorial Health System offered to become a partner and make the project happen sooner, rather than later, based on the success of cardiac, physical therapy and healthy living programming at the Kerasotes Y.  A major donor campaign, contributions from volunteers throughout the community and TIF funds from the City of Springfield made the goal a reality, according to Sowle.

When completed in 2020, the new facility design will accommodate more foot traffic and provide an expanded hot meal program, after school and weekend activities targeted to neighborhood kids and their families. Based on the needs assessment, the new building will offer twice as many swim lanes as the Y’s current downtown location and feature a zero-entry pool, ideal for water safety and swim instruction.

“The project is moving right along. We have 15 cast concrete panels in place, structural steel is showing up on the site and the pool surge tank is complete,” said developer Joe Hurwitz.
