Florida State will be breaking ground on its new athletic facility in a matter of weeks.

On Twitter Thursday night, FSU athletic director Michael Alford shared the Noles will begin construction on the project on Dec. 17.

The new building will adjacent to the Albert J. Dunlap Athletic Training Complex. It’s a project that Florida State initially announced in April of 2021 when Alford was the CEO of Seminole Boosters.

“This facility project is all about attracting the very best student-athletes and developing them, in all aspects,” Alford said last April.  “We are committed to fostering an environment where every student-athlete is able to perform at a high level while receiving leadership and life-skills training that they can take with them after they graduate.”

The new facility should help the Noles in their effort on the recruiting trail. It will also aid in the development of their players. Expected amenities include new position meeting rooms, locker rooms, a new weight room and virtual reality/performance enhancement areas, amongst other additions.

Florida State will learn its bowl destination on Sunday.
