New Sports Complex in Yerevan

New Sports Complex in Yerevan

The new sports complex is expected to be built very soon, and it will unite the Olympic Youth Sports School of Cycling and Olympic Youth Sports School of Sport, Artistic Gymnastics and Acrobatics named after Hrant Shahinyan. At first it was planned to build sports hall in the yard of Hrant Shahinyan sports school building, and then reconstruct the building of Olympic youth sports school of cycling. But the research revealed, that the building of Olympic youth sports school of cycling is physically worn out, in the IV degree of emergency and should be demolished for security reasons. As for Hrant Shahinyan sports school building, it is technically impossible to build a hall in its yard. Taking into account the research results, it is planned to join the projects and build one completely new sport complex.

The new complex will consist of two buildings and will be located at 48 Bagratunyats Street. One will host the 1076.0 m² rhythmic gymnastics and acrobatics hall and 348 m2 outbuildings. The other one is 1280 m² two-storey building with a flat roof and an inner courtyard, hosting the cycling sport school. The perimeter of the two buildings covered with asphalt concrete layer 220 m long and 2 m wide will serve as bike path.

The gymnastics and acrobatics hall can host 250 spectators. On the flat roof of the two-storey building of the Cycling Sports School it is planned to install 200-240 photovoltaic solar panels. The exterior walls of the two buildings will be fitted with three-color fibro-cement slabs. The sport complex will be able to host up to 500 people at the same time. The area is adapted for people with mobility problems. The new sports complex will have a well-landscaped green area of 1727 m², where all the decorative trees, firs and bushes will be replanted.

The design of the Olympic youth sports school of cycling and Olympic youth sports school of sport, artistic gymnastics and acrobatics named after Hrant Shahinyan is being implemented by HGSN LLC by the order of RA Urban Development Committee. The chief architect of the project is Gagik Harutyunyan.
