Florham Park construction site
Construction of the New York Jets' future home — a state-of-the-art corporate headquarters and training facility in Florham Park, N.J. — is well under way. The accompanying slide show includes current photographs of the site.
Hunter Roberts Construction Group oversees the project, which is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2008. Business operations are expected to move in at that time, followed by football operations in the spring of 2009.
Led by architects David Childs, architect of the Freedom Tower at the World Trade Center site, and Roger Duffy of Skidmore, Owings, Merrill (SOM), the new facility will accommodate all the needs of the football and business operations and will create a competitive advantage for the team. From cutting-edge training and medical facilities to a first-rate teaching and learning center, the facility will enhance the player experience and performance.
In addition to the 120,000-square-foot building, which will house the indoor training facilities and classrooms and roughly 100 employees, the corporate headquarters will also include four outdoor fields — three natural grass and one artificial turf — and one artificial turf field in a structured field house.
On March 31, 2006, after a several-month search during which more than 40 sites were considered as their potential new home, the Jets announced they were relocating their facilities to Florham Park.
