Designed to be a ‘destination’ Y, the David D. Hunting YMCA radiates energy and excitement by physically and visually connecting people and spaces, both within the facility and to passersby. The building’s success is reflected by its popularity. Prior to its opening, membership was anticipated to reach 12,000. The actual membership was 17,500, exceeding expectations by over 31 percent. As the first LEED NC Certified YMCA in the nation, the David D. Hunting is a symbol of the Y’s future—sustainable, healthy buildings filled with people developing strong bodies, minds and spirits.
