    Gym

    Our move from 2075 to 2585 King Rd., King City is getting closer to reality as dozens of tradespeople continue to work hard on the new building.

    Tilers, electricians, drywall installers, plumbers -- they're all putting their expertise to work building a municipal centre the residents of King can be proud of.

    The multi-use gymnasium is complete. The sprung wood floor was installed and varnished last week. Check out the video widget on the right side of the project page for a short video of the gym.

    A few things to know about the move:

  • We're getting ready to move!

    12 months ago

    We're currently in the process of packing up for our impending move to the new municipal centre just down the road.

    Take some time to browse the photo and video libraries for a sneak peek of the new centre. We hope you're as excited as we are!

    The increased space will allow staff to provide better customer service and add much needed public-use areas. These will include a larger council chamber and multi-use gymnasium/event space.

    A York Regional Police (YRP) substation will also be part of the new centre.

    We're currently in the process of packing up for our impending move to the new municipal centre just down the road.

    The increased space will allow staff to provide better customer service and add much needed public-use areas. These will include a larger council chamber and multi-use gymnasium/event space.

    A York Regional Police (YRP) substation will also be part of the new centre.

    “A great deal of time and effort went into getting the project to this point,” said Mayor Steve Pellegrini. “We wanted to build a municipal centre the residents of King expect and deserve, while doing it in a financially responsible way. I’m very pleased the tender to construct it came in within budget.”

    The cost of the project will be financed using infrastructure and development charge reserves and the proceeds of the sale of the current property at 2075 King Rd.

    YRP will also make a capital contribution and sign a lease for its space.

    The two-storey building will be more than 46,000 square feet, which includes 6,000 square feet for the gymnasium and 3,000 square feet for the police substation.

    Many sustainability features are going into the building and surrounding area. These include an electric vehicle charging station, a geo-thermal heating and cooling loop system, reforestation of some of the land and incorporating sustainable building materials and mechanical systems in the building.
