This former YMCA at the corner of George and Murray streets is the work of local architect William Blackwell, and forms an important part of Peterborough’s historical downtown. After 100 years, the YMCA left this iconic turreted building. Begun in 2017, it was transformed by Atria Developments into rental units known as the Y-Lofts. Come and explore this fascinating space.
