Atria Development is proud to have the opportunity to bring residential lofts to this historically important building and make it again an active part of Peterborough’s downtown. The early Romanesque façade will be preserved, and where possible, the concrete structural elements of later additions will be reused so as not to waste resources. It is an honour for Atria to be able to maintain the YMCA’s landmark presence and its place in the city’s collective memory.
Formally recognized as a heritage structure, Peterborough’s downtown YMCA was built in 1895 by local architect William Blackwell. Over the years, the building has expanded and changed to meet the needs of a growing number of patrons. Thanks to a donation from Charlotte Nicholls, the widow of prominent businessman Robert Nicholls, the Peterborough YMCA was able to begin construction.
The first addition to the YMCA consisted of a handball court, a club room and three more dormitories. Also, included was a swimming pool to be used for diving events, swimming |competitions and lessons.
The second expansion, designed by prominent Toronto architects Craig and Zeidler, included a youth centre and an additional Olympic-sized aquatic area.
The final addition to the YMCA building was completed in 1978 and consisted of an Olympic gymnasium, new handball and squash courts were created, and some improvements made to existing facilities.
Alas, the YMCA’s time at the corner of Murray and George Streets came to a close as everything was packed up and moved to a new location. Effectively closing a chapter in the life of this historical building.
The year that signifies the rebirth of a true local icon. As condo-style rental suites breathe new life into the historic YMCA Building in downtown Peterborough.
