Project Y Glenorchy – Redevelopment

A central place for the community to find out about the progress of the planned redevelopment of Glenorchy YMCA…


June 2019 Update:

Project Y Redevelopment

In February this year it was announced that YCMA will be receiving a federal grant for up to $6 million for the redevelopment and transformation of YMCA Glenorchy. This is great news, as our building is in much need of an upgrade. We are humbled to be recognised by the federal government and local politicians for our contribution to the community.

As we eagerly await the funding deed from our new Federal Government, once received, we will be working hard on community consultation, design work, tenders and application processes.  We anticipate development will commence in the second half of 2020.

Changes in the lead up to the 2020 redevelopment

During June 2019 we are changing the floor plan of YMCA Glenorchy which will improve the layout and operations of Y-Fitness and provide a new dedicated Café and Toddler programs space. This will provide an amazing community hub for kids, parents, members and guests to get together, enjoy a coffee and be apart of everything the YMCA has to offer. These changes will also free up the middle basketball court for additional programs until the redevelopment commences.

The changes will include…

  • Creating a welcoming café space in the foyer area for members and guests.
  • Relocating the group exercise room to a larger space.
  • Moving our cardio and fitness equipment to the current group exercise room.
  • Retiring some older equipment
  • Relocating the toddler play/program space

We are excited about these changes and look forward to rolling out our new improved floorplan which lead us towards the redevelopment.

If you have any suggestions that may assist us, please let us know at reception or by emailing We value your input and hope to work together to create a safe, welcoming community hub for everyone.
