Y leadership announced Friday that the building was under contract to be sold.

The 211,000-square-foot building has been used by the Y since 1983 but was originally built 83 years ago. Y leadership says the sale is necessary due to the cost of repairs, three quarters of which are structural. The building has not been renovated since 2009.

Hazelbaker wrote that Y leadership was still working with realtors to “guide us through the process of locating another building in the Downtown/Uptown area for the future.” The Y does not have a timeline on when a new location could be opened.Once the downtown YMCA closes, it will be the first time since 1885 that the YMCA does not have a physical presence in downtown Dallas.
