Towson University Shares Design Details of HOK-Designed Recreation Center Expansion

Burdick Hall Recreation Center ExpansionRenovations to Towson University’s Burdick Hall aim to enhance student life with an improved gym and fitness center.

“‘This project will finally provide a recreation facility that accommodates the significant campus growth over the past decade,’ said Vice President for Administration and Finance Joe Oster. ‘We’re thrilled to provide our students with access to up-to-date facilities to help them stay fit and healthy.’

“The Burdick Expansion features a 94,000-sq.-ft. addition located on the south side of the building closest to the athletic fields. The addition will house two multi-purpose athletic courts, an elevated sprint hill, a mind and body studio for yoga and Pilates classes, a dedicated cycling studio, and a combat studio. A new indoor challenge course will offer apparatus similar to those seen on the popular American Ninja Warrior television show made famous by Towson alum Kacy Catanzaro.”

“’The design has an airy feel with open fitness areas that allow you to see the activity in the gym from anywhere in the building,’ said Construction Services Director Scott Guckert. ‘Building materials like exposed steel and glass will reinforce the open floor plan while staying cohesive with the existing building.’”
