EverBank Field South Endzone, Phase 2
The Jacksonville Jaguars sought a new purpose for the area between the south endzone of EverBank Field and nearby Commodore Point Expressway. They decided to utilize the 230,000 SF of area to house a new covered practice field for the team and a year-round functional space for fan activities including a 5,000 seat amphitheater. The construction of the new complex called Daily’s Place represents phase 2 of a $90 million investment in EverBank Field. The signature element of the south-endzone activation zone is a single canopy roof structure made of mostly Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) fabric and steel. Future plans include linking the activation zone and the proposed Jacksonville Shipyards development.
The ambitious fast-tracked project is set to open in the spring of 2017. When complete, the combined practice field and amphitheater will be the first of its kind in the NFL and become an iconic superstructure to the cityscape of Jacksonville.
