On Thursday, January 10, 2013, the Downtown Development Review Board (DDRB) voted to give final approval to the design of the proposed Riverside YMCA development in Brooklyn. Here is a look at what will be constructed.





Located at 221 Riverside Avenue, the proposed YMCA building is conceptually designed as a three story, 85,000 square feet structure.   The 60 foot high building will include a splash pool over a storm water vault and park facing the riverwalk.

Adjacent to the Northbank Riverwalk, the building will replace the existing YMCA complex along Riverside Avenue, which will be demolished and replaced with a surface parking lot.  In the long term, the YMCA anticipates the future development of a mixed use structure and parking garage on the surface parking lot site.
