The steel skeleton of the new extension to the South Queens Boys & Girls Club is rising above Richmond Hill and the long-awaited expansion should be ready by this winter.

Ground broke in April 2011 on the $10 million extension and renovation, which will feature a new performance, technology and pre-teen center, a kitchen, more classroom space and sound rooms as well as a senior center and a dance studio.

Carol Simon, the executive director of the center, said construction is moving along on schedule as demolition of an old structure at the site and construction of the new wing were to take three years.

“We expect that our new 35,000-square-foot wing will be ready in February 2014,” she said in an email Tuesday.
