Hollywood Reservation will see big changes in coming months as construction begins on a new recreation facility, houses and townhouses. The construction of a 39,000-square-foot, two-story recreation facility began in December 2013. It will house a gym, the Boys & Girls Club and the Fitness and Culture Departments and will encompass the area from the Boxing Gym west to 64th Avenue and 30th street north to the Ball Field fence.
The first floor will contain two full-size basketball courts. Other amenities include a catering kitchen, with a buffet service area, to accommodate community events.The area designated for the Culture Department, also located on the ground floor, will feature a teaching kitchen, classrooms and multipurpose room. Outside will be a traditional camp with a cooking chickee at its center. The second-floor Boys & Girls Club will have two multipurpose rooms, classrooms, music room, studio and computer room.
The fitness area will include a cardio and weight room overlooking the basketball court. The existing outdoor basketball court will get a permanent cover, known as an airnasium.
In addition, eight new homes and 18 town homes are in the planning stages.
The anticipated completion date is September 2014
