The YMCA Welcome Village is part of the first phase of the Boyle Renaissance Project, a multi-phase, far-reaching community redevelopment situated in the area between 95 and 96 Streets and extending north from 103A Avenue to the LRT tracks. The Boyle Renaissance is a made-in-community solution that will provide a range of market and affordable housing units, and a variety of different services and programs that include child care, family services, community, social, recreation and park spaces, community gardens, and more. .
The Boyle Renaissance Development Association (BRDA) is working closely wtih the YMCA of Northern Alberta, Capital Region Housing Corporation, Boyle Street Community League, and the City of Edmonton to oversee construction of Phase I, a two-building development. The east building contains the YMCA Welcome Village's affordable housing. The west building is a new community centre that includes the YMCA Welcome Village's Child Care Centre, A YMCA Family Resource Centre, and the offices and multi-purpose programming and physical activity space for the Boyle Street Community League. The development will also have ample outdoor park space and community garden space for community use.
