Athletes’ quarters breaks ground
by Gaby B. Keith / PIO

City officials led the groundbreaking ceremonies for the construction of an athletes’ quarters and isolation facility at Athletic Bowl, Burnham Park.

Arch. Cliff Ham of the City Buildings and Architecture Office said the construction of the P30 million multi-level structure will start this month and will take around one year to complete.

With funds taken from the city’s 2022 budget, the dormitory-type facility designed by CBAO will have 30 rooms and 120 beds including an al fresco dining area, lounge, and other amenities.

Mayor Benjamin Magalong said like other projects implemented by his administration, no “under the table” deal takes place and the money meant for a project goes entirely for its completion.

“We will definitely eradicate corruption here in Baguio since this is the bane of any local government unit aspiring to become economically resilient and stable,” he said.

For his part, Gonzales said the facility will be a great boost to the city’s athletes and the sporting community as Baguio City is known as a haven for top-notch athletes.

Although primarily to be used as an athletes’ quarters, he added it would also function as a Covid-19 isolation facility if the need arises.
