YMCA Southside

YMCA  Southside -Perkins Road
Baton Rouge, Louisiana
21,200 SF

The YMCA organization retained CJA to develop a site and building feasibility study for renovating and expanding the existing Southside Branch located on Perkins Road. The process included evaluation of the planned Perkins Road expansion, as well as design options with and without the acquisition of adjacent property. In addition, CJA worked closely with the YMCA director to address space needed for the programs and functions that were currently being offered by the facility, as well as for future growth. The study concluded with a design utilizing the existing 15,800 sf building shell and construction of a 5,400 sf addition for a new indoor exercise pool. The renovations have not yet been implemented.
