    The long-awaited expansion of the oldest YMCA serving  Chinese-Americans in the United States will be celebrated Thursday in San  Francisco's Chinatown.

    The $22 million project has been 17 years in the making, according  to the YMCA.

    It will add 23,000-square-feet of recreation, community, education  and residential space, including a larger swimming pool, expanded wellness  and community centers, locker rooms, a new community kitchen and a digital  center for teens.

    The YMCA opened in Chinatown in 1911 and will celebrate its 100th  anniversary next spring. It officially reopens on Monday.

    Thursday's ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration takes place  at 4:30 p.m.
