Miami Beach Jewish Community Center Tops Out New 35,000-Square-Foot Facility

Local elected officials and community leaders gathered to share the anticipation of a major new recreational, social and educational facility, which will officially open its doors in September 2012.

 
PRLog - Feb. 14, 2012 - CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- MIAMI BEACH – The Miami Beach Jewish Community Center celebrated the topping out of its new 35,000-square-foot building on Sunday morning, February 12 with a ceremony and hard-hat tours that introduced a new, long-anticipated communal landmark.
   The topping-out ceremony in the shell of the new JCC building featured the participation of Miami Beach Mayor Matti Herrera Bower, City Commissioners, Greater Miami Jewish Federation Chair Barbara Black Goldfarb, and other local civic, religious and organizational leaders.  
   The new structure and its three-acre property, located at 4221 Pine Tree Drive, are scheduled for completion this September and will become the first full-service JCC facility in the 97-year history of the Miami Beach.
   ““Miami Beach is the largest Jewish population center in the United States that currently lacks its own full-service Jewish community center,” said Jerry Sokol, President and Campaign Chair of the Miami Beach JCC.  “When the doors of our new facility open later this year, it will mark a real milestone with the introduction of new and innovative programs that will serve to unify a truly diverse Jewish population.”
   The new two-story building will be known as the Galbut Family Miami Beach Jewish Community Center in recognition of the first major donors to the JCC’s $12 million capital campaign.  
   Located along the Intracoastal Waterway, the property will feature a variety of specialized facilities to meet the recreational, cultural, creative and social needs of the Miami Beach Jewish community.  These will include a 6,500-square-foot gymnasium, a 4,200-square-foot outdoor swimming pool and a multi-purpose outdoor playing field.
   Another new feature will be a 4,200-square-foot fitness center, offering state-of-the-art workout equipment, designated rooms for Pilates, aerobics and spinning, and a staff of expert instructors and trainers.
   Club One, one of the nation’s premier operators of exercise facilities, will manage the new fitness center, and will coordinate a curriculum of classes and programs tailored to the needs of health-conscious men and women of all ages.
   The new JCC will host a variety of special events, including concerts, art exhibits, cultural presentations and holiday celebrations.  Additionally, it will accommodate a schedule of children’s events, day camp sessions, senior citizen programs and adult enrichment activities.
   The property was made available to the JCC through a 99-year lease, provided by the City of Miami Beach.  Construction was initiated with a construction loan that was generously guaranteed by the Greater Miami Jewish Federation.
