IUPUI natatorium to get $20 million renovation

INDIANAPOLIS – The IUPUI natatorium will undergo a $20 million renovation that officials say is aimed at keeping it a world-class swimming facility.

Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard and Indiana University President Michael McRobbie joined other officials Monday in announcing renovation plans for the 32-year-old building that has hosted numerous major swimming and diving events.

IU and the Lilly Endowment will each contribute $10 million toward the natatorium project. The city will spend $10 million to improve major streets through the campus.

The natatorium project is to include a new roof and repairs to the heating-and-cooling, pool filtration and other mechanical systems. Most work is to be finished before the U.S. Olympic diving trials are held at the natatorium in 2016.
