Magic Look To Build New Training Facility With $5.1M Land Deal
The Magic are "eyeing the purchase of a city-owned parking lot just west of the Amway Center, where the team may build a new training facility with an orthopedic and community health center," according to Ryan Gillespie of the ORLANDO SENTINEL. The $5.1M deal would "join the land with a smaller neighboring grassy lot the Magic already own." The practice facility would be "about 100,000 square feet with a joint orthopedic facility and health clinic, as well as parking." The Magic currently practice at the city-owned Amway Center. The agreement has a "swift timeline for the project to move forward, with the team required to file demolition permits within six months of purchase and any building permits six months later." The move would be "similar to other standalone facilities throughout the NBA" (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 2/6).
