ST. LOUIS, Mo. ( -- The Downtown St. Louis YMCA will move to a new building after ninety years at its current location at 1528 Locust.

The Board of Directors for the Gateway Region YMCA voted to move the gym to the MX Building development at 6th and Locust.

 “For a number of reasons, the current facility faces significant annual financial losses. This, along with a sizable investment needed for deferred maintenance, prompted our search for a new location," said Tim Helm, CEO of the Gateway Region YMCA. "This move will put us in a position to reduce the negative impact on our long-term fiscal health and provide continued service to the downtown community and those from around the bi-state area who use the facility.”

The YMCA has been at its current location on Locust since 1926.
