West Seattle YMCA is launching an $11 million capital project to expand and renovate its building at 4515 36th Ave. S.W.

The 33,000-square-foot Y will expand to 47,000 square feet. After expansion and a remodel, the building have an open floor plan and more natural light.

The architect is Miller Hayashi Architects. Lease Crutcher Lewis is the general contractor. Lewis built the original West Seattle YMCA in 1984.

Construction will begin next summer if fundraising is successful and finish in mid-2016.

The club will remain open during construction.

The project will double the space for cardio, strength and fitness activities. Other additions will include a children's play space, room for tween programs, family changing rooms, community meeting room, kitchen for nutrition programs, and more underground parking for cars and bicycles.
