New YMCA building in Wimbledon set to open

A new YMCA building has had its topping out ceremony to mark its completion and opening in the new year.

The new building, facing on to The Broadway in Wimbledon, will provide 135 new homes and two ground floor commercial units.

The new YMCA Wimbledon building will provide 121 hostel rooms with en-suite bathrooms and cooking facilities. 

This represents Phase 1 of the redevelopment of the current YMCA site.

Residents and the wider community will be able to access enhanced facilities which include a gym, studio space, a children’s play area and new YMCA café. 

The new facilities are expected to open for use next summer.

Phase 2 of the project will begin once installation and occupation of the new YMCA Building is complete. 

This will involve the demolition of the former YMCA building and its replacement with new homes and business units. This work is expected to take a further two years to complete.
