The site for the P163-million Bacolod Masskara Coliseum now has perimeters along Alijis Circumferential Road with the backdrop of the Canlandog Murcia-Silay mountains. This came to life through the legislative efforts of Senator Zubiri in 2018 and is designed by Manila-based LG+V Architect/Planners.
The two structures, which will each have two stories, will include a multipurpose museum and an 800-seater amphitheater. The coliseum will be air-conditioned and will seat more or less 10,000 people.
The project has already been granted an Environmental Compliance Certificate by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources-Environment Management Bureau. The two projects are part of the 8.8-hectare property donated by the Yanson family to the city government. The land will not only be the site of the museum and the coliseum, but also of the future southbound terminal.
