Gulf Building completes new YMCA in Fort Lauderdale

Gulf Building LLC has completed construction of the new L.A. Lee YMCA Mizell Community Center for YMCA of South Florida at 1409 NW Sistrunk Blvd.

This state-of-the-art community fitness and education facility celebrated its grand opening on May 20. The four-story, 70,000-square-foot, mixed-use building features ground-floor stores along Sistrunk Boulevard, an outdoor swimming pool for community swim lessons and exercise, and a rooftop terrace.

The second and third floors are dedicated to wellness and fitness activities. They include an indoor basketball court and gymnasium, locker rooms, a black-box theater, youth zone, offices, and support space.

Broward College will use the entire fourth floor for classrooms, labs, and meeting space that promote educational goals, including general educational development degrees and college-entry preparation.

“As a 30-year-old local firm headquartered just a few blocks away from the new center, Gulf is extremely pleased to have been part of this amazing project which brings important programs and services to the local community,” said John Scherer, President/CEO at Gulf Building.
