Norman Foster Designs PGA Tour's HQ
Located on a portion of the PGA Tour’s existing property, the 187,000 square-foot building will house more than 750 employees who are currently spread across 17 buildings in the area. The PGA Tour has been based in St. John's County since the late 1970s, when it moved from Washington, DC.
Foster + Partners describes the global home as being a pair of parallel three-story bays flanking a collaborative atrium. The glazed façades and atrium fill the building with natural light, also allowing for views out to the surrounding landscape throughout the structure. Underscoring the sustainable focus of the project, the building is targeting a LEED Gold rating. The roof has five large skylights that bring natural light into the building, and it is also envisioned that the roof will accommodate a series of photovoltaic panels that will support the building’s energy needs.
