Rex Wakefield Wellness Center

Rex Wakefield Wellness Center

Part of the first phase of a mixed-use development, the Rex Wellness Center is a two-story, 43,000 SF facility that houses a comprehensive medically and professionally supervised health and fitness program, offering state-of-the-art facilities for recreation, including pools, exercise rooms, and education training rooms. The building is of tilt-up construction with brick veneer and stucco accents that complement the surrounding architecture in this growing area in north Raleigh. A two-story. circular lobby enclosed with glass walls links the two rectangular volumes and organizes the vertical circulation and common areas within the facility. A therapy pool, lap pool, whirlpool, and full locker room facilities are located on the main level, along with a children’s area and lease spaces for future tenants. On the second floor, patrons can access an aerobics room, personal training areas, an exercise room, and several activity areas.
