Renderings Of $135M Miami Dolphins Training Facility Now Under Construction, Which Could Become NFL’s Best

The Miami Dolphins broke ground today on a new training facility that could become the best in the NFL.

The team says that they are building a “best in class” complex that will attract free agents and help improve the team’s training.

The facility is being built on a Hard Rock stadium parking lot, on the northwest corner of the property.

Dolphins players will have access to significantly improved facilities.

The complex will be 217,200 square feet complex – more than 50,000 square feet larger than the team’s current facility. It will include 125,000 square feet feet of training facility area, and a 92,200 sq. feet indoor field area.

The complex will have an innovation hub for new technology, spatial computing and a walkthrough space, hydrotherapy area, fuel bar, recovery area including cryotherapy and isolation tanks, an athletic training room with expansive rehabilitation space, meeting rooms with direct access to the fields, a two-story weight room with a cardio deck, locker rooms, equipment space, dining hall, auditorium, an outdoor practice area with two full natural grass fields, full indoor practice facility, a lobby with a grand staircase, office area, press area, fan amenities and a broadcast area.

It will cost over $135 million to build the new facility. By comparison, the entire Joe Robbie Stadium cost $115 to build when it was completed (in 1987 dollars). Baptist Health is partnering to name the complex, and a Baptist sports performance clinic inside will be open to the public.

The Dolphins moved from Miami-Dade to their current Davie training facility in 1993, and have not been to a Super Bowl or AFC Championship since then.

Rossetti is the architect. Moss Construction is the contractor.

Completion is scheduled for Spring 2021.

I will settle for being able to compete. A far cry from year past when anything less than playoffs was considered a disappointment. This owner is a disappointment.

POLO

It looks like a first class facility.

“Home” as in a failed suburb.

A far cry from the Barry University days.NFL training facilities are going big time. Raiders are building something out of Star Wars in Vegas.
This Dolphins training facility is nice as well…and good location choice too.

Real question is how much would you be willing to pay per month to have a gym membership here?

Distraction from what’s needed to build a quality team.

I was getting so over Florida, but in the last few years we have stepped up our A-Game. We have a few Smart Cities in the pipeline. Lake Nona is already considered a Smart City, they have a state-of-the-art Tennis facility which is also super high tech and considered one of the best in the world. And now we get NFL one… Love it!!!

Why don’t they add some apartment building on the stadium lot with a mini mall?? We all can agree that the Hard Rock stadium has way too many parking spaces.

… and shore power?

I agree with that, add some dense mixed-used developments on some of those lots.

I think The county smart plan is to extend the metrorail from the airport to the stadium in time for the 2026 World Cup along the avenue
