LOOK: What Rizal Memorial Sports Complex could look like after renovations
MANILA, Philippines—A couple of months into the renovation of the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex, the Philippine Sports Commission released several artist’s renders of what could be the ultimate look of the historic arena.
On its official Facebook account, the PSC shared 12 photos of what the RMSC could look like after the renovations that started in July and is expected to be finished in time for the 2019 Southeast Asian Games in November.
Gone would the bleak and lifeless exteriors and in place would be a vibrant walkway lined with trees and flowers while lights adorn the façade of the arena that was built in 1934.
Glass doors would be installed at the entrances with several lights illuminating the once bleak passageways.

This wasn’t the first time that RMC was part of a massive reconstruction project since it was rebuilt in 1953 after getting destroyed during the Battle of Manila of World War II in 1945.
