Impact Development Management has been selected as the owner’s representative for the new Sports Performance Center, a public-private partnership between the National Football League’s (NFL’s) Jacksonville Jaguars and the City of Jacksonville in Florida, US, already under construction next to the 67,164-capacity TIAA Bank Field in downtown Jacksonville. The Jacksonville Jaguars will be the main tenant of the facility and will maintain the property, which will be owned by the City.

The ‘Impact Development’ quoted Jason Hughes, President and one of three owners of the company as stating, “We are grateful for the opportunity to work with the Jaguars organization on the Sports Performance Center – a much-anticipated first-step towards their long-term vision for downtown Jacksonville. Our number one priority is to support the goals of the project and its ownership in a way that benefits the surrounding community and fan base in anticipation of the Stadium of the Future much like we did successfully at the 71,000-capacity Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.”

The mission of Impact Development Management is to positively impact people and communities through commercial development projects. The expertise of the Atlanta (US)-based development management group is sought after across the country for delivering a high-level of service, no matter the size, scope, or location of a project. IMPACT has managed more than 570 projects valued at $12 billion in variety of market segments.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are a professional American football team based in Jacksonville, Florida (US). The Jaguars compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the American Football Conference South division. The team plays its home games at the TIAA Bank Field.

The 67,164-capacity TIAA Bank Field is an American football stadium located in Jacksonville, Florida (US), which primarily serves as the home facility of the Jacksonville Jaguars of the National Football League (NFL).

The ‘Impact Development’ further stated that development of the estimated $120 million training facility is expected to be completed in time for the Jaguars training camp in Summer 2023. This state-of-the-art facility will feature two outdoor natural grass fields, and one indoor full size synthetic turf field as well as public fan amenities, which include grandstands to seat more than 2,100 Jaguars fans for a one-of-a-kind training camp experience. Locker rooms, conference rooms, training and rehabilitation spaces, medical support facilities, a weight room, team dining facilities, and a draft room will also be included in the City-owned performance facility.

Said Jaguars President Mark Lamping, “The construction of the Sports Performance Center is a critical step toward our vision for a revitalized downtown Jacksonville. Impact Development Management brings a wealth of experience from their work on previous first-class NFL venues that will help us deliver the elevated vision we have for a new facility.”

As the project’s owner’s representative, Impact Development Management will handle the project management of all aspects of the project, from design to post-completion. The firm will bring the concept to life and have an IMPACT by combining institutional investment, development and project management expertise with entrepreneurial enthusiasm, energy and adaptability. To also help bring this vision to fruition will be the renowned architecture firm, ROSSETTI, and accomplished Contractor, Haskell.

Shared Greg Wieting, Vice-President at IMPACT, “Collaborating with our team and other firms to manage projects is one of our strengths that clients appreciate, and it has a tremendous impact on the results for clients, projects and communities. Through commercial development initiatives like the Sports Performance Center, we are able to have a positive influence on individuals and the surrounding communities whether by spurring economic growth or bringing people together. We are thrilled to be a partner on this project and look forward to seeing it through completion.”

Developing projects that will have a positive influence on people and communities is one of the core values of Impact Development Management.
