ABTS Closes In On YMCA Property

By Nicholas Briano


The YMCA construction is weeks away from beginning. The YMCA construction is weeks away from beginning. Representatives from Arverne By The Sea announced this week that they have closed on the land for the future site of the YMCA, meaning construction can officially commence.

The group was officially given the land by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development on June 30, says YMCA spokesperson Ellen Murphy.

“The developer is in the process of finalizing their construction contract with the General Contractor,” Murphy said. “As soon as that is complete, the agreement between the developer and the Y will be concluded and site work will begin.”

According to project manager Gerard Romski, a contractor has indeed been selected and work should begin in approximately two more weeks.

“We’re just working on the fine print with the general contractor as well as the YMCA,” Romski told The Wave this week. “Hope to commence construction in two weeks or so. In fact the contractor has begun mobilization on the site.”

Once the construction is completed the building will be handed over to the YMCA, which will own and operate the property.
