The YMCA in downtown Asheville had a ribbon-cutting Tuesday to celebrate a $2.5 million renovation project started in July.

The event marked the completion of years of improvements. Some of them include a 2,400-square-foot expansion to the wellness center, new flooring, lights and fans.

"So excited. Our staff team, our members everyone's been really great. Everyone pulled together as a team, and we all survived together," YMCA's Jessica Hendrix said. "So, we're really excited for all the changes and all the really great impacts that we're going to be able to have on our community downtown."

The building was built in the 1970s and was last renovated in the mid 1990s.
