See construction progress at Fine Arts Center and Athletics Complex Aerial photos show new concert hall, natatorium and arena

Aug. 30, 2019 - See the latest aerial photos of the Arlington ISD’s future Fine Arts Center and Athletics Complex. Significant progress is being made, and now you can clearly make out where the concert hall, natatorium and arena are.

Construction is moving along well, and the dry summer months, with no rain delays, have helped. The new facilities are scheduled to open in the fall of 2020.

The Fine Arts Center will serve the entire district, grades prekindergarten-12, with world-class performance and demonstration venues. It will include a 1,250-seat concert hall, 425-seat theater, classroom space, art and dance studios, instrument repair center and art gallery.

The Athletics Complex will give the district its first-ever natatorium. The natatorium will include a 50-meter pool with moveable bulkheads, a diving area, warm-up pool and seating for 1,000 spectators. In addition to the natatorium, the Athletics Complex will house a 1,200-seat arena for competition wrestling, basketball and volleyball. The space will also be used for a new elementary gymnastics program.
