The multi-million dollar, three-story facility is designed to house more than 400 service members and civilians representing all branches of the armed forces.

The facility was built on land leased from Miami-Dade County next to Homestead Air Reserve Base.

The location was chosen because of its proximity to the U.S. Southern Command headquarters in Doral.
