“Boston College’s Connell Recreation Center will be a Beacon” according to a new story from Campus Rec Magazine. Reaching four stories with windows galore, the Connell Center will be an inspiring addition to the campus when it opens in summer of 2019. Per Caitriona Taylor, the director of campus recreation at Boston College, “Our vision is strengthening the Boston College community by advancing its health and well-being, and I think when people see this building they’re going to feel invited to take part in something that’s going to help them achieve this.”

The 244,000 sf Connell Center broke ground in March 2017 after a three-year planning process. It will consist of individual and group training areas, an aquatics center, a gymnasium, an indoor jogging track, a mind-body studio, multipurpose rooms, and fitness neighborhoods throughout. Our Colleen McKenna contributed to the piece, saying “The new center sits on a prominent site considered a signature piece of the lower campus. Plus, it aligns with the campus’ long-term goals for student life, as well as the campus rec department’s objectives for the project.”
