The center located on Progress Drive near Upper Bellbrook Road will be the new location for Xenia’s YMCA and senior center, but it also will feature education space for Clark State University and Central State University.

The driveway and parking lot are mostly paved and much progress has been made on the building since breaking ground in March.

Cement floors are down and drywall is up. Workers with Ferguson Construction continue to work on entryway doors and installing infrastructure in the ceilings and rooftop.
