The works of this new municipal space in the capital of León are advancing at a good pace and are already executed at 16%
The Puente Castro sports center carried out by the León City Council is beginning to take shape with the works already executed at 16%. The projected building is located between Sagitario, Villarreal and Rosalía de Castro streets and has a bidding budget of 2,310,019.65 euros.
For his part, the councilor for the Internal Regime, Mobility and Sports of the León City Council, Vicente Canuria, explained that the Puente Castro Sports Center project meets the needs of the neighborhood that lacked a quality sports infrastructure and also the requests from residents .
Structure of the sports center
The initiative of the Government Team, at the proposal of the Union of the Leonese People, is structured in four prismatic volumes of different sizes and heights that will house the different uses. Thus, the main one will house the sports court (49 x 26.5 m), operating as a regulation futsal, handball, basketball or badminton field. This space is complemented by a grandstand with 670 seats and 18 seats adapted for wheelchair users, with access from the ground and first floors. It is expected that under the stands there will be storage spaces.
In addition, the proposed natural lighting combines lighting through the south facades (with a concrete canopy element that protects it from direct radiation) and north (in the upper part of the stands) and overhead lighting through longitudinal skylights in the vertical of the game track.
On the right side of the building there will be a gym and warm-up room. The rest of the building will house the administrative offices, a versatile space for meetings, warehouses, lockers, toilets, changing rooms and a first-aid area.
Also in the project it is contemplated that in front of the south facade of the building a green area will be enabled and space will be reserved for future outdoor sports facilities.
