Bryan Glazer Family Jewish Community Center opens in former Tampa Armory

- The completely renovated historic Fort Homer W. Hesterly Armory building opened Thursday as the Bryan Glazer Family Jewish Community Center. 

Tampa Bay area elected officials and other leaders attended a ribbon cutting for the center, which has more than 100,000 square feet of community space, including a gym, spa, cafe, and theater.

The state-of-the-art facility includes a fine arts center operated by the City of Tampa in conjunction with the Tampa Museum of Art in partnership with the Hillsborough County Board of Commissioners. 

There is also a fitness center with indoor track and multi-sport gymnasium, a fully equipped outdoor aquatic center, and a a social service center operated by Tampa Jewish Family Services and the Florida-Israel Business Accelerator. 

The new JCC is a welcome addition to the growing area just north of Kennedy Boulevard, giving a new life to the once-vacant Tampa Armory building.
