A unit of JLL said it is providing project management services for the YMCA of Greater Boston’s expansion of its West Roxbury facility.

The $15 million project will update the 61-year-old facility with the demolition of 16,000 square feet from an existing building, and the construction of a 24,000-square-foot addition, said JLL, a commercial real estate services firm that recently shortened its name from Jones Lang LaSalle. JLL has a big presence in the Greater Boston market, and its Project and Development Services group is working on the YMCA expansion.

The project includes a renovated gymnasium, a new state-of-the art fitness center, a new lobby, two wellness studios and an extended parking area. The outdated indoor swimming pool, meanwhile, is being replaced with a new aquatic center that will include lap and family pools, JLL said.
