The Northfield Area Family YMCA is a 30,000-square-foot, full-service recreation, sports, and wellness center located on the south side of the city of Northfield.
The YMCA’s commitment to health and wellness was integrated into every part of this building. The facility, which has a precast concrete building shell and decorative metal wall panels, sits on a greenfield site. The site was chosen to complement the city’s Healthy Communities Initiative and allows for connections to future bike paths.
The building fulfills the community’s vision with a center that is modern, original, and open. Its interior components include a gymnasium, elevated running track, cardio room, lobby and commons, child-care center, locker rooms, multiple restrooms, administrative offices, and a back-of-house with a laundry facility.
