The Red Bulls announced on Monday that Gensler, a global architecture, design and planning firm, will serve as the lead architectural designer for its new Training Complex in Morris Township, N.J.
Gensler will guide all architectural and design planning for the future state-of-the-art facility.
The Major League Soccer Club’s current training center is located in Hanover, N.J.
The team did not say when the new complex would be built.
“Gensler will provide world-class architectural planning expertise as we partner to build the premier training complex in all of Major League Soccer,” Red Bulls general manager Marc de Grandpre said in a statement. “Our shared vision for this facility is something that our entire organization, along with the Morris Township community, will be extremely proud of for many years to come.”
Added Jonathan Emmett, Gensler’s principal and design director: “We are honored to partner with the New York Red Bulls to create their new home, which will bring their professional team, academy and youth development programs together in one location. The core design concept for the training complex focuses on the performance, health and wellbeing of the athletes, coaches and staff.”
The complex will be located on the former Honeywell site off of Columbia Road, within one mile of the Route 24 interchange with County Road 510.
The 80 acres of land being developed will feature eight soccer pitches. Along with the first team and Red Bulls II, the complex will also be home to the New York Red Bulls Academy and youth training programs.
