Watch time lapse of Fine Arts Center/Athletics Complex construction Video shows 10 months of construction

Nov. 15, 2019 - Watch construction of the Fine Arts Center and Athletics Complex from the ground up in this time lapse video. The video starts in January when there were just muddy fields at the site adjacent to AT&T Stadium and goes through Nov. 14 when the structures are completely up.

Construction of the AISD Fine Arts Center and Athletics Complex is proceeding well and reached the topping out point in early November. In the natatorium portion of the Athletics Complex, the shell of the exterior is essentially complete and the hole for the pool was recently dug. (Watch video of digging for the pool.)

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.
