RALEIGH, N.C. — YMCA of the Triangle has unveiled plans to develop a $41 million recreation center and school located at 1436 Rock Quarry Road in southeast Raleigh. The project is being funded with $21 million in New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC), and a loan from SunTrust Community Capital. CAHEC New Markets LLC, a subsidiary of Raleigh-based CAHEC, a nonprofit tax credit equity syndicator, provided YMCA of the Triangle with $15 million in NMTC allocations, and SunTrust provided the remaining $6 million. Tax Advantage Group provided NMTC advisory services to YMCA of the Triangle. The new facility will house a 42,960-square-foot recreation center with a wellness area, gymnasium and group exercise studio, as well as a 71,980-square-foot building that will be operated and leased to the Wake County Public School System. The new YMCA center will create 28 permanent jobs in the area, as well as 129 construction jobs during the development phase. The project is slated for completion in August 2019.
