On Tuesday, November 2, 2021, the Global Home of the PGA TOUR took home the award for New Development at the 2021 Urban Land Institute (ULI) North Florida Awards for Excellence!
The Global Home of the PGA TOUR, brings the entire organization under one roof for the first time. Employees were originally occupying 17 separate office facilities within the Ponte Vedra area, but now are located just south of the TPC Sawgrass - Stadium course in its new three-story, 187,000 square-foot building that is nestled within the verdant landscape and surrounded by water, preserving the existing greenery and wetland areas within 45-acres of land. The building reflects the progressive spirit of the PGA TOUR, as it embraces new ways of working and collaboration, responding to changing media landscapes and audiences in the future.
The Global Home was completed in December 2020 with the principles of biophilic design that utilizes the natural environment for conceptual planning that makes the project’s focus on sustainable design, with the building targeting a LEED Gold rating. The roof has five large skylights that bring natural light into the building. Its extended overhang on the building edge significantly reduces solar gain on the glazed façades. The roof accommodates a series of photovoltaic panels that will support the building’s energy needs. Employee wellbeing is a central theme at the no-smoking campus. The building features a raised floor that allows for maximum flexibility and premium air quality and site-wide recycling facilities.
Prosser was the master planner and landscape architect for this project that previously won the Florida Planning and Zoning Association (FPZA) award for Master Planning of Land Areas in 2019.
