This is how the finished building will look. Watch the progress.

The Skyway Community Centre is on track to open later this year.

Already several components are in place that give a clearer picture of what it will look like.

A new time-lapse video has been released which shows the building progress of the $40 million structure that is taking shape on Kenwood Ave. in the southeast area of the city.

When complete, the facility will be Burlington’s most state-of-the-art public building.

The 47,000-sq.-ft structure will be home to an NHL-sized ice pad with seating, six change rooms complete with washrooms and showers, multi-house program areas with kitchens, and a three-lane indoor walking track among several other amenities.

And that’s just inside.

The surrounding park will see a new baseball diamond with dugouts and seating, accessible pathways, a children’s play area and washrooms.

As the video shows, the work is continuing at a brisk pace and the project is expected to be finished and open for use by the summer of next year.

Here is what has been done so far.

  • Structural steel has been erected and a metal deck has been installed
  • Masonry walls completed
  • Roofing is ongoing
  • Door frames and window frames are being installed
  • Work is underway to prepare the floor for pouring of the concrete rink slab
  • Geothermal wells have been drilled at the back of the property
  • Baseball diamond field posts are installed with a fence and net to follow
