The New Tampa Recreation Center (NTRC) expansion project is moving forward as the Tampa City Council approved an additional $660,000 in funding and voted 7-0 to award the contract to Valrico-based Phinazee and Granger Construction.
The groundbreaking is scheduled for April 12, according to Neighborhood News.
The 7,825-sq.-ft. expansion is expected to significantly expand the facility. The expansion will completed around the end of 2019.
Located in New Tampa Community Park, the recreation center has a 12,500 sq.-ft. gymnastics area, which includes a gymnastics pit, tumbling strip, and full apparatus gymnastic equipment for all competitive Olympic events. The facility also has a large multipurpose room that can be divided into two separate rooms, a snack bar, and gymnastic viewing area as well as a covered deck.
