GREEN BAY, WI (WHBL) - The Packers unveiled phase 2 of renovation plans at Lambeau Field that focuses primarily on the atrium entrance.
The price tag is an estimated at $140.5 million.
The Packers Pro Shop would move to where the Hall of Fame is now as part of a revamped lower level that will double it's size now. The front area of the atrium entrance that is now a walkway, cement and landscaping will be excavated to clear the way for a new main entrance to the Pro Shop, which is a huge money maker for the Packers.
The Pro Shop will not close during any part of the renovations.
The Hall of Fame moves to second level where Curly’s Pub is now, and Curly’s moves to the Atrium level where the Pro Shop is.
Those two businesses will close temporary during their relocations. Packers President Mark Murphy says this will really improve the atrium; in particular our businesses, it will be much better for fans and guests coming to the atrium to get in and out.
The Atrium renovations also include what Murphy called a mini-Don Hudson workout space for conditioning and team walkthroughs.
Player parking is moving to the south end of the Oneida Gate. Players will have access via a tunnel under a new extended Oneida Gate and Oneida Plaza.
In addition, there will be another enterance to the Atrium and businesses to the east of the Onieda Gate.
The project start date is March and with a construction time table through mid-2015.
