Start counting down! After much delay, the Ocean Breeze Track and Field Athletic Complex is set to open soon.
The Parks Department announced that the complex is scheduled for "substantial completion" at the end of March, and should be ready for the public by early April. The sleek, glass-walled, 135,000 sq. ft. structure located on Father Capodanno Boulevard in South Beach will hold 2,500 spectators. The building will contain track, cardio, and fitness rooms, as well as a covered parking lot and surrounding landscape.
The $93 million construction project saw delays due to Hurricane Sandy, and the discovery that many concrete pilings were not strong enough to support the weight of the building.
