On May 15, 1998, Titans owner K.S. "Bud" Adams, Jr., selected a 31-acre site at the MetroCenter complex in Nashville as the team's permanent practice location. Since that time, a beautiful multi-million dollar facility has been built by Nashville-based Powell Building Group on the property, located just north of downtown Nashville about five miles from LP Field.
The team moved into the facility on Aug. 26, 1999, the day after training camp completed and the day before the first preseason game at LP Field. The 80,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art building contains lockers, weight rooms, meeting rooms and offices for coaches, players and administrative staff. The building also features an auditorium with seating for 125 people, as well as other meeting rooms.
Designed to exceed the standards of all previous training and practice facilities, the weight training center and rehabilitation treatment facility sets the model for all professional sports. The facility boasts three outdoor practice fields with natural grass, plus an enclosed field with Field Turf. Logistically, each field is identical to the game field at LP Field, from the 100-yard length, to the geographic orientation. The longitudinal center of each field is 24 degrees west of north, just like the field at LP Field, enabling the Titans to practice in the same slanting sunlight they face on Sundays.
The site, selected from more than 60 sites reviewed, was purchased from MetroCenter properties. The facility occupies a peninsula that joins into the lake across from the Fountain Square commercial development. Among the leading builders in middle Tennessee, Powell was chosen for its state-of-the-art construction planning and building techniques.
