The Green Bay Packers announced details for the Titletown District. It is to be created on approximately 34 acres of land immediately west of Lambeau Field, according to Packers.com.
Central to Titletown will be a planned 10-acre public plaza, a park-like setting with year-round, diverse programming that will feature fitness-related activities, cultural opportunities, a winter ice skating rink and team-inspired public art.
A hotel will be built by Kohler Company in the area. Bellin will have a Health Sports Medicine Clinic and Hinterland will have a restaurant and brewery. These initial tenants will be located on approximately eight acres of land in Titletown.
“We’re very excited to share our vision for the Titletown District,” Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy said. “The public plaza, with its size and location near Lambeau Field, will be a draw that is very unique in our area and a wonderful public space for our community.
Targeted completion is set for Fall 2017. Groundbreaking is anticipated for this fall.
Packers will hold focus groups in the coming weeks with community stakeholders to determine the programming and activities for the public plaza.
The Packers will invest approximately $65 million in Titletown, with a cumulative initial investment by all parties to be between $120-130 million.
Lodge Kohler will include a panoramic bar and restaurant, an indoor/outdoor garden pool, spa and fitness facility, and an outdoor area featuring a tented event space.
Bellin Health facility will be a 30,000 square-foot sports medicine facility within the Titletown District. The facility will be geared toward injury prevention, performance improvement, and treatment and therapy for injuries.
Hinterland’s new facility will be 20,000 square feet, nearly four times larger than the current Green Bay restaurant and brewery. It will feature a main floor brew pub and restaurant experience that pairs farm-to-table culinary experiences with gameday specialties.
