The city issued a building permit Feb. 16 for a foundation on the site of the new Jacksonville Jaguars Sports Performance Center near TIAA Bank Field.

Haskell is the contractor for the $3 million work on the management team’s 127,087 square foot practice, training and office.

The city is reviewing five other building permit applications submitted by Detroit-based architectural firm Rossetti for the estimated $120 million joint project between the city and the team.

The Jaguars will move team offices, an equipment room, and weight and medical facilities from the stadium to the city-owned performance center.

These permit applications total $49 million in foundation and vertical construction components at 1270 E. Beaver St., northwest of the stadium.

Some of the applications have duplicate labor costs. Final costs will be determined during the review process.

Rossetti specializes in designing sports entertainment facilities, including working with Daytona International Speedway and Arthur Ashe Stadium for the US Open in Queens, New York.

The city council voted unanimously in August to authorize the borrowing of $60 million to help fund half of the project’s cost to the city.

In accordance with legislation and the Jaguars’ public agreement, the team will relocate team offices, an equipment room, and weight and medical facilities from the stadium to the city-owned performance center.

The Town Center Development Review Board approved the facility’s design in October to include an indoor training ground; two outdoor natural grass pitches with approximately 2,300 bleacher seats; a team store; and concession facilities.
