bear mountain sports complex
Architect: Design Collaborative / Integrity One
In the fall of 2023, Anderson+Bohlander collaborated with the architectural team of Design Collaborative and Integrity One to develop an exciting new master plan for their future sports complex. Currently spread out through town at various locations, and in partnership with other local institutions, the University's athletic programs are in need of a centralized sports complex that can meet their growing needs and developing sports programs. The Bear Mountain site is an abandoned mining site to the west of town that looks out over Pikeville and the Levisa Fork valley. The Bear Mountain Sports Complex will be home to several new sports stadiums to serve football, soccer, baseball, softball, and track and field. As one of the leading archery programs in the country, Bear Mountain will also include a new archery range and 3D archery course as another unique offering at this site. As an anchor for the community, Pikeville University also sees the future of Bear Mountain as a recreational asset for the community that can provide access to public open spaces and walking trails, and offer facilities that support other local youth programs .
