“We are excited to join forces with the YMCA on this transformative project that promises to bring about such positive changes. The YMCA’s impactful presence on the community is undeniable and it is truly an honor to contribute to making this a reality,” said Casey Ellison, president and chief executive officer of Ellison Development

Plans also call for the preservation of the Standard Oil Building, located at 110 E Oak Ave.

Working on the project with the YMCA are Ellison Development along with architects Fleischman Garcia Maslowski, engineers Kimley-Horn and Gardner Brewer Hudson, as zoning attorney.
