This is how the finished Skyway Community Centre will look.

Burlington’s latest community centre is on track to open later this year.

An up-to-date time-lapse video shows the Skyway Community Centre is on its way to completion.

The $40 million structure is located on Kenwood Ave. in the southeast area of the city and will soon be a hub of neighbourhood activity.

When complete, the facility will be Burlington’s most state-of-the-art public building.

The 47,000-sq.-ft structure will be home to an NHL-sized ice pad with seating, six change rooms complete with washrooms and showers, multi-house program areas with kitchens, and a three-lane indoor walking track among several other amenities.

And that’s just inside.

The surrounding park will see a new baseball diamond with dugouts and seating, accessible pathways, a children’s play area and washrooms.

As the video shows, the work is continuing at a brisk pace and the project is expected to be finished and open for use by the summer of next year.

Here is what has been done so far.

  • Roof is completed
  • Glass had been installed
  • Painting has commenced on the interior walls
  • Doors and frames are being installed
  • Installation of exterior precast and insulated panels ongoing
  • Work is underway to prepare the floor for pouring the concrete rink slab
  • Geothermal work is ongoing
  • Baseball diamond field posts and fences are installed
