Kroc Corps Community Center

Dorchester, MA

The Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center of Boston is the largest private, nonprofit community center in Massachusetts. The transformation of this once abandoned six-acre Dorchester site into a new 90,000 square foot facility offering intergenerational state-of-the-art services has completely revitalized the area. This comprehensive community resource attracts area residents for arts and education, workforce development, fitness, sports, and emotional and spiritual care; making it a vibrant hub of the community. The contemporary design is sympathetic to the size, scale and materials of the neighborhood, and creates a lively extension of the community, an open space of diverse activity, and an interior village where people can see and be seen. Design features include a 500-seat dual court NCAA regulation gymnasium, ropes course and climbing wall space, full cardio and fitness equipment areas, recreational pool and outdoor playground, a 250-seat chapel/community theatre, culinary arts teaching kitchen, and a synthetic turf multi-use athletic field and playground.
