Apartments being built at the old Central Branch YMCA in Gastonia

The exterior of the old Central Branch YMCA on West Franklin Boulevard Tuesday morning, May 10, 2022. A developer plans to build apartments at the site within the city's FUSE District.

A Charlotte-based real estate developer wants to build apartments with space for commercial and retail use at the former Central Branch YMCA on Franklin Boulevard in Gastonia. 

“We love the growth we’re seeing in Gaston County and what’s happening with the FUSE District,” said Mark Miller, the CEO of Highline Partners.

Miller believes the 6-acre site would be good for apartments, commercial space and a food/beverage type business. 

Highline Partners represents a niche development company that focuses on boutique residential and commercial projects, Miller said. 

The company is under contract to redevelop the property, which neighbors the CaroMont Health Park within the city’s FUSE District.

The property sits at 615 W. Franklin Blvd., in front of the historic York Chester neighborhood. For decades it was the site of a YMCA until the YMCA moved to Robinwood Road and became the Warlick Family YMCA.
