Daily's Place at EverBank Field
The Jacksonville Jaguars, like many NFL teams and owners, sought ways to connect their team and stadium to the community on more than just 10-11 game days per year. They also sought a new purpose for the area between the south endzone of EverBank Field and nearby Commodore Point Expressway. The solution: a new complex named Daily’s Place — a first-of-its-kind, multi-purpose facility connecting a 5,500-seat amphitheater and a 94,000-square-foot indoor practice facility to the south side of EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Florida. The new facility will draw fans to the stadium complex for more than 50 concert events per year and fill a team need for an indoor climate-controlled practice space.
The construction Daily’s Place represents phase two 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 opened in time for Memorial Day weekend 2017. The combined practice field and amphitheater facility is the first of its kind in the NFL and has become an iconic superstructure among the Jacksonville cityscape.
