Result

Increased spirit of University sports teams

A wellness center is known as a place for the entire community and is the heartbeat of campus life.

Situated on the southwest corner of Queens University, adjacent to the historic neighborhood of Myers Park, this Center serves as the primary sports and student recreation facility for the University. Observing the traditional architecture of the school’s existing buildings, this transformational center is appropriately scaled for the school and the surrounding historic neighborhood; preserving large, mature trees to use as a natural buffer between the two.

The Levine Center has changed the way we, as a community, experience wellness. It’s more than a gym and it’s not just for athletes. Rather, it’s a place for our entire community and I expect it to become the heartbeat of campus life.
