I had the incredible pleasure of taking a tour today of the Durham-Chapel Hill Jewish Community Center — known as the Levin JCC. This creation of this building has been a huge effort on the part of the community and it is almost done. The building will open this June, 2011. The building is over 36,000 square feet. There will be two outdoor pools, a gym, exercise and spinning rooms, art and music studios and tremendous spaces for teens, tots and seniors. This building will be home to not only the JCC but the Durham-Chapel Hill Jewish Federation and Jewish Family Services.
For more information about the building, see:
The building is flooded with windows and natural light. In the picture below, I am standing with a group in the community court and the other pictures are the gym in progress and another picture of the community court!
