Six months after announcing plans for a new global home and pledging a long-term commitment to Northeast Florida, PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan was joined last week at a private event by former Commissioner Deane Beman, members of the PGA Tour’s executive leadership team and St. Johns County commissioners, administrators and staff to officially mark the site.
Located off County Road 210, the new 187,000 square-foot headquarters is expected to be completed by the end of 2020. “Topping out” is expected to take place in the third quarter of 2019.
“While we commemorated the site with a simple new sign, the importance of this key milestone cannot be overstated,” Monahan said. “Former Commissioner Beman had a vision to bring the TOUR to Northeast Florida in the late 1970s, and I am proud that we will continue to build upon that vision for years to come, right here in St. Johns County, with the construction of this beautiful new facility.”
Designed by London-based architectural firm Foster + Partners, the building will house more than 750 employees who currently occupy 17 buildings throughout the area, with the capacity to accommodate several hundred more. According to Foster + Partners, the design embraces new ways of working and collaboration for the PGA Tour, as it responds to changing media landscapes and audiences in the future.
