The Jacksonville Jaguars have given fans an early look at their “stadium of the future,” having revealed renderings of the multibillion-dollar renovation project via a YouTube video.
The project, which will also see the team develop the area around their TIAA Bank Field, promises a base 62,000-seat open-air stadium boasting a shaded canopy that is expected to reduce heat by up to 70 percent.
It will include a main concourse that is four times wider than the current one, as well as lookout decks from where visitors can take in the city.
The two pools added in 2014 and the large video boards at each end zone will remain. The stadium could eventually expand to a 71,000 seater.
The Jags revealed all of this in the nearly five-minute clip shown right below:
The cutting-edge venue is also expected to host international soccer matches, music festivals, concerts, and possibly the NFL Draft. The video includes a brief NCAA Final Four snippet but makes no mention of potentially hosting another Super Bowl.
According to Jaguars president Mark Lamping, the renovation could cost as much as $2 billion. The stadium renovation is expected to cost between $1.3 million and $1.4 billion, with the surrounding area expected to take up the rest.
Lamping also claimed that the construction of a whole new stadium would cost an additional $1 billion.
Team owner Shad Khan will split the development cost with the city 50-50. The renovation could take up to four years.
