On October 21st, the Pinecrest Council, staff and builders gathered outside the existing Pinecrest Community Center next to Pinecrest Gardens on SW 112th Street to pitch a shovel towards the groundbreaking of an expansion project.
The 7100-SF expansion will be added to the existing 14,600-SF to provide a new fitness center with locker rooms and restrooms, more classrooms, a spinning class room, movement room, café with indoor and outdoor seating and indoor playground.
The $5-million project will be done in two phases. The new building, located at the north end of the existing site, is slated to be completed in approximately six months. Then existing activities will move there while they renovate the existing building, including a new outdoor playground, special landscaping and a gazebo.
Mayor Cindy Lerner was excited to say, “We’ll have more of everything for our community. The whole project is scheduled for completion in April of 2018.”
