Edward Jones Family YMCA
St. Louis, MO
This new branch introduced the Y's first "YMCA Family Hub," an interactive experience where kids and adults alike can scale climbing walls, surf the net, or explore science exhibits.
- The 75,328 GSF "Y" has a family leisure pool with zero-depth entry, a vortex and slide, a family recreation gym, state-of-the-art health and fitness center, and a licensed preschool. The 9,600SF day-care center has a separate entrance and drop off area.
- Careful site planning makes it a good neighbor. Nestled into the hillside, its low south profile is buffered by meticulously preserved mature trees. The building's plan forms a sunny, south-facing play yard for day-care children.
