The University of Arizona has revealed a number of artist renderings for planned upgrades to Arizona Stadium, McKale Center and other athletic facilities.
The images coincide with UA's launch of its Capital Campaign, which seeks to raise funds for facility upgrades, along with the creation of a new Indoor Sports Center. The project includes:
-A remodel of Arizona Stadium's lower east concourse, ZonaZoo concourse and gate entry, with new restroom and concession facilities. Scheduled for completion Sept. 1.
-Renovations in the lower concourse area of McKale Center, and new locker rooms for several of UA's NCAA teams. Scheduled for completion Aug. 15.
-Renovations to the Hillenbrand softball stadium seating areas and press box. Scheduled for completion in January.
-Renovations to the Hillenbrand Aquatic Center, including the expansion of the 50-meter pool to 65 meters, and upgrades to the pump and plumbing infrastructure. Scheduled for completion in January.
-Construction of a climate-controlled Indoor Sports Center for training and conditioning. It will include a full-width, 90-yard field and a 10-yard end zone for football practices. Construction will begin in April and is scheduled for completion in December.
