It will likely come down to property large enough that the city owns or can get cheap. Do the midtown owners own the parking lot?
The YMCA has needed new digs for a long time. I remember how dated that place looked in the 90s... They deserve a better location, too. Edmonton has a few YMCAs closer to suburban areas for more community usage.
