YMCA - Wilkes-Barre, PA
The comprehensive Historic Tax Credit renovation project of the 1933 Wilkes-Barre YMCA required the complete reconfiguration of 97,000 SF on 7 floors. The project began in 2010 to condense the YMCA facilities into the lower 4 floors and develop student housing apartments on the upper 3 floors as off-campus apartments for students at Wilkes University. A new interior ramp over 60' in length was also installed, as well as the relocation of a historic staircase and a new elevator to connect all YMCA levels to accommodate ADA access. The student apartments include both single-story and duplex apartments.
