West Reading Avenues Spring 2018 - 13

Did You Know?
On Tuesday, September 12, 2017, the
Yocum Institute for Arts Education broke
ground on a new building, located at
3000 Penn Avenue in Spring Township.
The new site will continue the revitalization
of the Penn Avenue corridor and will
provide a greater access to the arts in
the western half of Berks County.

The 40,000 square foot building, originally a knitting mill
and warehouse, was purchased in June at $750,000 and is
currently undergoing a $3.5 million renovation with Burkey
Construction. There are many funding opportunities still available for those who look to be involved in the redevelopment.
The new site will continue the revitalization of the Penn
Avenue corridor and will provide a greater access to the arts in
the western half of Berks County. The building will be ADA
compliant, taking into account various activity abilities and
participation restrictions. It will also feature more extensive
offerings for seniors, an up-to-date music wing, expanded
visual arts and dance studios, and an emerging artist gallery.
In addition, the new building will feature a black box theatre
that has the potential of being open to the community for
rental use and a parking lot with over 90 parking spaces!
The 3000 Penn Avenue building will host many new updates
and amenities for preschool and kindergarten parents. There
will be a new drop off lane that will allow parents the freedom to safely drop their students off for the day, as well as a
secure, private entrance to the preschool wing. The building
will host a partially covered play space perfect for the young
(and young-at-heart) ones and increased accessibility to dance
and music studios, an art gallery, and working theatre space.
With so many exciting changes and expanding opportunities
for us and for our community, we cannot wait to see what
the Yocum Institute of Tomorrow will be.

Education building project or any of our programming, please
