The new Anderson Munger Family YMCA will begin construction at Third St. and Oxford Ave. in October.
A groundbreaking ceremony for the two-story community center is planned in January, and building completion is targeted for spring of 2014.
A lap pool, fitness center, children’s activity room and rooftop running track are among the amenities at the Y’s 26th branch in the city.
Also included in the 30,000 square foot facility are an older adult class area, child watch room, locker rooms, member lounge and administrative offices. Parking is available for 160 vehicles.
In addition to support from the John Anderson, Charles Munger and Fred Arnold families, funding has come from the Community Redevelopment Agency and tax credits provided by Chase, Lowe Enterprises and the LA Fund.
The branch was first located at a former real estate office at the northwest corner of third St. and Larchmont Blvd.
The facility moved to a new building at the present site at Third St. and Oxford Ave. in 1971.
