Construction has begun on a new athletic field and field house at a high school in the Queens borough of New York City reports that the improvements at August Martin High School are expected to cost $58.9 million and will replace an existing field in poor condition.

The athletic field is slated to be completed by spring 2026 and the fieldhouse in 2027.

The state-of-the-art athletic field will feature a main area for football, soccer, baseball and lacrosse, as well as a track and field and other amenities. The new field, which will include a new drainage system, will also feature bleachers that will accommodate over 800 spectators.

The fieldhouse will house locker rooms, a press box, and an additional array of features. It will replace an existing fieldhouse that is in disrepair. 

Allison Tirberio, principal of August Martin, says the school is looking forward to having facilities that will enable it to host teams from other schools.
