Instagram of the Week
We love this shot of the Miller Electric Center construction going up next to The Bank! This 96,113 SF indoor practice field will feature a team weight room and an upper cardio deck, hydrotherapy pools and a fan amenity zone with grandstand seating for 2,000 people. We can’t wait to see the finished Miller Electric Center and sports performance center in Downtown Jacksonville!
