LSE Architects designed the new YMCA in the Headwaters Development area of Forest Lake Minnesota. Due to the project development agreement, LSE started schematic work on this 54,000 GSF facility in February 2015 and construction was completed for a July opening. The new Y facility includes indoor aquatics with a 4 lane lap pool, leisure/activities pool that includes a current channel, slide and other features, an outdoor adjacent splash pad, kids stuff, community room, teaching kitchen, flexible gymnasium with running track above, a fitness/cardio room with views to the exterior and women’s, mens and family locker rooms. The construction is simple precast concrete exterior walls with storefront window systems to allow max daylight to the fitness spaces. This building has been conceived as a prototype and can be easily translated to other potential Y sites.
