On the first floor, the apartments have separate bedrooms for boys and girls, in addition to a TV room and a boardroom, where it is possible to set up chess, table tennis and billiards, like technology. Bathrooms and changing rooms were built on both floors. Two 1.5 m deep adult swimming pools have been constructed for swimming events. Apart from this, a children’s playground and an open gymnasium were built. In view of the traffic problems, indoor parking has been provided for the gymnasium. Solar panels have also been installed on the roof of the building to meet the energy requirements of the complex, making it a semi-green house.

Launched in 2019, the Indoor Sports Arena was built on 1.3 acres of land for Visakhapatnam Metropolitan Region Development Authority (VMRDA).

There were speculations that the challenge would be launched during the visit of Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on the occasion of Navy Day on December 4, However, GVMC officials have decided.

GVMC Commissioner P. Raja Babu said that as of now, there is no schedule of starting the sports ground. But the gym will be open to the public at first.
