YMCA – CityWay

As part of a large development on the near south side of Indianapolis called CityWay, this urban YMCA provides the health and fitness components in this mixed neighborhood of hotel, retail, restaurants and residences. The YMCA building houses community-service facilities, as well as a medical office and retail food service tenant space. The internal circulation patterns within the first floor of the YMCA utilize mid-block connectors, so patrons can easily access neighboring retail and residential services. Amenities include a lap pool, a recreational pool, multiple basketball courts, an elevated jogging track, a large fitness area that overlooks the adjacent hotel plaza, multi-purpose classrooms, yoga and cycling rooms, teen and family centers, child watch, and beginner-fitness areas. Several elevated, outdoor terraces and green-planted roofs complement the adjacent street-level park and pedestrian green spaces. Thanks to its location and proximity to local business and industry, including Eli Lilly and Company, this YMCA is has become a hub of activity. IDO provided interior design and FF&E (Furniture Programming Planning & Specification) services for this innovative YMCA facility.
