Family & Children’s Place has a great opportunity to co-locate some of our therapists at a new West Louisville YMCA, which is scheduled to begin construction later this year. The new 62,000 square foot building will be built at the corner of Broadway and 18th streets.
For many years, Family & Children’s Place leased space near 31st and Broadway in West Louisville, but in 2013 the lease ended and West Office staff relocated to the Kosair Charities Child Advocacy Center. Because we wanted to continue our presence in West Louisville, we began conversations with the YMCA about the new facility and possible co-location opportunities.
It has taken a while for the YMCA to finalize planning, but the project is moving forward and the YMCA, along with Mayor Fischer’s office and other co-location partners, Norton Healthcare, Republic Bank, and ProRehab, is planning a public announcement of the project at 2 p.m., Thursday.
The two-story building will include a state-of-the-art fitness center, 25-meter swimming pool, gymnasium, classrooms, modern locker rooms, an indoor track and childcare playrooms, in addition to our tailored office space and other partners’ offices.
We are very excited about this opportunity to partner with the YMCA, a great community partner, and will keep everyone informed as planning proceeds.
