Boston College announced a $200 million facilities project Monday.

The project, which involves the construction of a 240,000 square-foot recreational center, multiple playing fields and an athletics field house, will begin this summer and likely take multiple years to complete.

“These new facilities will provide benefits for all BC students and student-athletes,” Boston College athletic director Brad Bates said in a statement. “We need the financial support of all of our alumni who have benefited from their BC education to provide opportunities for the next generation of BC students. The athletics field house sets an example of what we can do when our alumni and friends offer their support for our athletics initiatives.”
