Upon completion, the Huntley Street Recreation Centre project will see the adaptive re-use of an existing 1980s built large scale warehouse building into a multi-functional sports and commercial building serving the expanding Alexandria and Green Square communities.
The new sports centre has 4 indoor multipurpose courts for sports competitions, programs and public court hire and will cater for a range of sports including basketball, netball, futsal, volleyball and badminton as well as a comprehensive program of accessible sports for wheelchair users.
The upper level of the building will provide 600sqm of additional community space and will include facilities including a gymnasium and multi-purpose spaces for use by the community such as for dance classes. The project additionally includes the creation of a major new public space in the form of an activated forecourt which will include extensive landscaping as well as half courts and spaces for fitness, with a direct connection to the Alexandra Canal and livable green network.
A Development Application was lodged in December 2020, with construction forecast to commence in early 2022.
