News Release Regarding Argyle Ave. Facility | October 27, 2022

Built in 1969, the Y facility at 180 Argyle Avenue has come to the end of its life cycle and can no longer meet its needs without significant infrastructure upgrades.

With this in mind, the Board of Directors of the YMCA-YWCA of the National Capital Region has made the decision to list the facility for sale.

Working alongside our government partners and generous donors during this sale process, the Y is confident it will find a new and modern home that will be better designed to meet the needs of our residents, and ultimately better support the Y’s vital community programs.

As this process will take up to two years, the Y will work diligently to ensure the least amount of disruption to our clients, especially for those who call this Y facility their home.
