Chelsea Recreation Center

Chelsea Recreation Center

Construction of the Chelsea Recreation Center, located in the historic Chelsea area of Manhattan, was initiated over 30 years ago by the Department of Parks of the City of New York. Left incomplete during the fiscal crisis of the 1970’s, a virtual shell of a building, it had remained barren until 2001, when the City of New York elected to complete the Center
Our firm was retained to restore the existing structure and to complete the project as a comprehensive multipurpose recreation center. A new competition-size pool and state-of-the-art gymnasium are the major amenities of this project, supplemented with a complete menu of meeting and seminar rooms, gymnasium facilities, locker rooms, and educational and art workshops, studios, and community facilities
The completed project will provide the expanding Chelsea community with the most modern rec-reation facility in the city of New York.
