Jaguars and City of Jacksonville break ground on Daily’s Place

The City of Jacksonville and the Jaguars are entering Phase 2 of their $90 million investment into EverBank Field.

The City of Jacksonville and the Jacksonville Jaguars officially broke ground on a brand new amphitheater and covered flex field adjacent to EverBank Field.

The construction of Daily’s Place represents Phase 2 of the $90 million investment in EverBank Field announced by the City of Jacksonville and the Jaguars at the State of the Franchise event in January. Phase 1 included the improvements to the US Assure Club and the creation of a new south end zone super-tunnel that serves as a brand new field entrance.

Phase 2 is expected to be completed in May 2017.

Daily’s multi-year partnership with the Jaguars and City of Jacksonville includes the naming rights sponsorship for both the amphitheater and covered flex field.

Daily’s Place will house the new 5,500-person capacity amphitheater and 94,000-square foot covered flex field, as well as a back-of-house artist building. The amphitheater will reside underneath a roof that covers both venues.

Daily’s Place will be fully integrated into EverBank Field. At the ground level, the new south end zone field tunnel will lead to a brand new central bar connected to the amphitheater entrance. The existing Bud Light Party Zone and Terrace Suite areas will now be linked to the amphitheater’s elevated seating decks via access bridges at each level.

The covered flex field includes a regulation size football field with over 20 feet of auxiliary space around the artificial playing surface. Flanked on the north and south side by hangar doors, the facility can be used independently or opened up to the amphitheater via a sliding door behind the stage that measures approximately 53 feet tall by 60 feet wide. Along the south side of the property are four more sliding doors of similar size that, when opened, create an open air experience measuring 222 feet wide. When the doors are closed to the flex field, the space is fully climate controlled.

The design was conceived alongside architects from Populous and will be built by the team from Hunt+Danis, A Joint Venture. Populous also designed the newly renovated US Assure Club and the new south end zone tunnel.
