The Lodge Kohler hotel being built near Lambeau Field in Green Bay as part of the Titletown District is on track to open in time for the start of the team's training camp in July, TODAY'S TMJ4 partner, the Milwaukee Business Journal reports.
The sledding hill, which will also offer tubing, is the main feature of a park the team is building as part of the Titletown District. The park will also have a skating rink and trails for public use.
The Milwaukee Business Journal is reporting the sledding hill will be 45 feet high, have a 30 percent slope and a 300-foot run. Part of the ice rink will pass under the middle of the hill. The west end will include a ground-floor cafe and a second-floor meeting space with an outdoor terrace. The hill will have LED lighting and sliding will be toward Lambeau Field. Sledders access the top of the hill by climbing it or by elevator.
The hotel is being developed by Kohler Co., of Kohler, 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.
Aaron Pokey, a Packers spokesman, said the hotel is scheduled to open in mid-July.
The first tenants at the 34-acre development are Lodge Kohler, a Bellin Health’s sports medicine clinic and Hinterland Brewery, which was completed in April. The Packers front office envisions Titletown along Lombardi Avenue as a destination for Packers fans, tourists and Green Bay-area residents.
Packers president Mark Murphy recently told the Milwaukee Business Journal that the next phase will include a high-end grocer and a Chicago-style pizzeria, along with five townhouses and 140 units of apartments. The Packers are working to select the residential developer soon, Murphy said.
