The first business in the ROSSETTI-designed Green Bay Packers Titletown District will open in April as construction crews continue work on the first phase of its Titletown District being built immediately west of Lambeau Field.
Construction is underway on a 144-room Lodge Kohler, Hinterlands restaurant, a Bellin Health Sports Medicine & Orthopedics facility and a public plaza that will include a man-made sledding hill featuring tubing lanes for winter enjoyment.
Packers president Mark Murphy recently said on the team's website that the warmer than usual weather in fall had allowed crews to stay on schedule, with Hinterland set to open in April and the hotel and medical clinic slated to be completed in July. The first part of the public park should open before the start of the 2017 training camp, and the sledding hill and skating rink and trail should open by mid-November.
"We’ve put so much time and effort into the planning of Titletown, it will be very gratifying to see our plans become reality," Murphy said. "I’m also excited to see the impact that Titletown will have on the local community."
The hotel is being developed by the Kohler Co. and will have a panoramic bar and restaurant with a view of Lambeau Field, two private dining rooms that will accommodate up to 20 guests each, an indoor lap and family pool, an enhanced fitness facility and full-service spa.
The Packers announced plans last fall for the park in the 35-acre Titletown District. The 10-acre plaza in the center of the district will include a man-made sledding hill featuring tubing lanes and a winding skating trail and rink.
In a recent interview with the Milwaukee Business Journal, Murphy said the team is expected to release details of the second phase of the ambitious development in early 2017. He said it is likely to include a grocery store, restaurants and other family entertainment establishments.
