ITD has joint jurisdiction along with ACHD, as the transportation department has responsibility for Front and Myrtle streets, and the county for 9th and 11th streets. The project has its address on Myrtle, but work heavily impacted local roads as well.

Construction crews broke ground on Jack's Urban Meeting Place in 2012.

McAlvain Concrete served as concrete contractor on the JUMP project, placing more than 25,000 cu. yds. (19,114 cu m) of cast-in-place concrete in multiple phases. The double helix ramp structure, only the second of its kind in the United States, was a success in both form and function. Curved concrete surfaces blend with the overall structure, contributing to the building's overall architectural significance.

The grand pioneer staircase required class 1 concrete finishes with as-cast conditions. The elevated and curved (horizontally and vertically) stair structure is the architectural cornerstone to this project and serves as the main entrance to this new facility.
