35,000 square-foot facility that includes both an elementary school and a community YMCA
First of its kind in North Carolina, joint school/YMCA facility will be a cornerstone of the Beacon site – a larger campus being built using a national model that focuses on revitalizing an entire community which will include affordable housing units.
