With the walls around the pool gone, it's now easy to see the construction progress on the proposed new Highland Recreation Complex.
The recreation center should be complete in May of 2013, according to Facilities Manager Glenn Harwood.
Harwood said the construction process is going very well.
Within the next couple of weeks the building will have all of its walls and windows, so if it rains, the inside of the building will not get wet. Work continues on various systems such as electrical, plumbing, air-conditioning and duct-work, Harwood said.
Next steps on the new complex include site work, such as roads and parking, Harwood said.
The new 40,000-square-foot building will have an indoor walking track, double gymnasium, indoor play zone, exergaming fitness room, and more.
The Largo City Commission will consider the $89,711- purchase of the equipment for the exergaming fitness room on Dec. 4. The space will have interactive electronic games to promote physical activity, according to a city report.
The construction of the new recreation building began in May of 2012.
