NYCFC Selects HOK, Turner Construction Company to Design and Build New York City’s First-Ever Soccer-Specific Stadium

NEW YORK, NY — New York City Football Club (NYCFC) has selected HOK as the architect and Turner Construction Company as the general contractor to design and build New York City’s first-ever soccer-specific stadium.

NYCFC is also working with Queens Development Group (QDG) to bring forward a once-in-a-generation project for Willets Point that will include 2,500 units of 100 percent affordable housing, a 650-seat new public school, a hotel, open space, and NYCFC’s fully privately financed, 25,000-seat stadium. Following the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) approval process, construction on the $780 million project aims to be completed for the Club to play in its new stadium for the 2027 Major League Soccer season.

"It is clear that HOK and Turner are the right partners to bring our vision of a world-class stadium that is integrated into the local community," said Brad Sims, NYCFC CEO. "Soccer is known around the globe for its incredible in-stadium atmospheres, and we are committed to delivering a best-in-class experience for our fans in a stadium that reflects the greatest city in the world."

“We’re honored to work with NYCFC to design New York City’s first-ever soccer-specific stadium for the 2021 MLS champions," said Rashed Singaby, Principal and Senior Project Designer at HOK. "The stadium will embody New York’s dynamism and cultural diversity and become a vibrant example of urban placemaking. Our design will embrace the multi-faceted identity of Queens, Flushing Meadows, and the site’s industrial heritage, offering fans an unprecedented, hospitality-driven game-day experience while integrating into the local community as an everyday asset.”

HOK’s design will strategically position the stadium along the edge of 126th Street, integrating into the city grid to optimize land use and incorporate public open space. In addition to providing a home for NYCFC, the stadium will provide a variety of year-round amenities and events. The site is adjacent to the USTA Billie Jean King Tennis Center and the New York Mets’ Citi Field.

“We are honored to be a part of the team building the new home for NYCFC. The stadium will elevate the experience for this incredible team and their fans,” said Turner Vice President and General Manager Charlie Whitney. “From the very beginning of our involvement, we understood the importance of this project and the positive impact and transformation it will bring to the entire community. We look forward to continuing to work in close partnership with HOK and the entire team over the next several years to achieve our common goals, deliver on our commitments, and make this project a reality for NYCFC and New York City.”

HOK and Turner Construction Company’s relationship dates back 50 years. In that time, the firms have completed more than 400 projects together. They have successfully delivered large-scale projects in the New York market and across the United States, spanning corporate, health care, science & technology, and sports & entertainment facilities.

Queens Development Group, a joint venture between Related Companies and Sterling Equities, will oversee the stadium and district’s development. The entire project will enter the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) approval process later this year and will be reviewed by the New York City Public Design Commission. NYCFC will work to finalize the stadium design to align with entering the ULURP approval process later this year. The stadium and development are projected to generate more than 14,200 local jobs during construction, with 1,550 permanent positions created upon completion.
