The Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens will play at Super Bowl XLIX, the first year of the Superbowl’s two-year, $4 billion TV deal with NBC, but they have yet to open a new office.
That will change with the arrival of the New York Jets.
The Jets, who have spent $50 million renovating their $1.4 billion facility, will begin work on a new 10,000-square-foot office building on the Hudson River, the team said Tuesday.
The office building will be open by Feb. 18, 2020, and will be the first building of its kind in the country, the NFL said in a statement.
The new office building has a capacity of 10,700 square feet and will accommodate up to 5,000 employees.
The team’s facility, which will be constructed on the west side of the Hudson, was built for $8.7 million in 2010, but it took a year to renovate and expand it to accommodate the team’s growth.
The new building, which the Jets will occupy, will be about 8.2 acres, and is the first large building in the city, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection said in an announcement.
The building will serve as a training facility for the team, and the project will be completed by December 2021, the agency said.
The team will renovate the adjacent facility, but has yet to decide whether it will use it for the football or football training facility.
The New York Post reported in March that the Jets are looking to open an office in New York City by March 2021, when the team will be in its fourth season.
The franchise is still exploring a location in New Jersey, but the team has already announced that it plans to move to New York next year.
The Broncos, who play at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., have already opened a $100 million office building in downtown Denver, and they have also opened a new building in suburban Denver.
The Broncos will open the new building this spring.
The Vikings, who opened their $400 million stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in September, have opened a facility for their team in a downtown Minneapolis hotel, and a new $1 billion stadium is slated to open in 2020.
The NFL announced that the Cleveland Browns, who played in the Superdome in New Orleans from 1967 to 1971, will open a $500 million facility in the heart of downtown Cleveland in 2019.
The Browns are the only NFL team with a stadium.
The Seattle Seahawks, who hosted Super Bowl XXXVI in 2015, have announced that they are expanding a $400-million stadium in Seattle to allow for the construction of a new stadium.
The stadium is expected to be ready in 2020, with the stadium project expected to cost $1,600 million.
