Community center provides residents of West Harlem with new program spaces
A new 23,000-sf community center in Upper Manhattan is providing West Harlem residents of low- and middle-income housing with spaces for recreational, educational, and social programs. Programs provided by the Children’s Village, a public-private partnership that works with area youth, will make use of a gymnasium, classrooms, multipurpose spaces, a commercial kitchen capable of serving 200, a basketball court, a performance stage, and an arts and crafts studio. The $13-million Polo Grounds Community Center was completed by a Building Team that included New York-based architects MDSzerbaty+Associates, general contractor Omni Construction, and MEP engineers George Langer Associates.
