Today in Pictures - Jefferson at 14W


 
Back in December of 2010, Perseus Realty and Jefferson Apartment Groups (JAG), an Akridge affiliate, broke ground on 14W, replacing the former Anthony Bowen YMCA with apartments and a new YMCA.  The project had languished for years before finally getting the cash infusion from JAG that finally got it going (despite a faux-groundbreaking), and is now reaching its final stage of construction.

The HOK and Dorsky Hodgson & Partners-designed project will feature 231 rental apartments, a brand new, state-of-the-art 44,000 s.f. YMCA, and over 12,000 s.f. of ground-floor retail. The new gym and apartments will deliver later this year.

This project is taking forever. The general contractor is taking its sweet time.

Will the Y have a pool for lap swimming?

The project is on schedule. So, not sure why you think the contractor is taking his sweet time. It is a mixed use project that takes time and I've been following the project and it is tracking what the developers have been saying.

The contractor working on the project is on schedule, but the work was originally planned to commence a few years earlier, which you can see if you follow our links to our past stories on the project. It took longer than suspected to fund the project, despite a groundbreaking that was not followed by construction.

The new YMCA will have a heated 6-lane pool for lap swimming and classes!
