Stage 2 involves a new dedicated building for YMCA’s community based activities, which will accommodate black-box theatre, preschool, health and wellbeing spaces, education facilities for young people, dance and movement studios, and a range of support tenants, including general medical practice and physiotherapy. All undertaken in an operational environment.
The design creates a new front door for the YMCA on Rolleston Avenue across from the Christchurch Botanic Gardens, by activating a central courtyard between Hotel Give and the new building, thereby forming a central heart of the YMCA redevelopment.
The building will be a cross-cultural and cross-generational, vibrant new home for the community in the heart of Ōtautahi Christchurch.
Stay tuned for project updates!
