Packers getting ready to move ahead on residential development in Titletown District
ASHWAUBENON – Workers on Wednesday blocked off Brookwood Drive in advance of the start of residential construction in the Green Bay Packers' Titletown District .
The Packers plan to build 70 to 90 townhouses along Brookwood Drive between Ron Wolf Way and Marlee Lane. A 150-unit apartment building and five-story office building are planned for the western end of the district along Marlee Lane.
A building permit was issued June 10 for construction of a 15- to 20-foot high podium on top of which the apartment and office buildings will be built. Parking will be under the podium. The project is valued at $28 million.
The office building will include five floors of Class A office space above the podium. It will be 130,000 square feet and large enough for 400 workers.
The lobby will extend to grade level on the west side of the building, giving the appearance of six floors of office space. A penthouse level at the top of the building will primarily house mechanical systems, such as heating and air conditioning units, and provide access to a large, exterior patio area for office tenants and visitors.
The five-story apartment building will consist of studios and one- to three-bedroom apartments.
The residences along Brookwood Drive, referred to as townhouses, although one option is really stacked flats, will come in three styles with varying prices. Those adjacent to the Titletown park likely will be the most expensive. The stacked flats will be the least costly. Final details, including cost and available options, should be available by the end of summer, the Packers said.
Individuals interested in the residences can get more information and add their name to a list at www.livetitletown.com.
Brookwood Drive reconstruction will begin within days, starting with utilities, said Aaron Schuette, Ashwaubenon community development director.
Permits for the townhouses will be issued after the county approves redrawn plat boundaries. The village has given its approval.
Titletown District is a 45-acre development immediately west of Lambeau Field. It includes a 10-acre public park and plaza with outdoor games and fitness activities; a winter skating rink and tubing hill located at Ariens Hill; the four-diamond Lodge Kohler hotel; Bellin Health Titletown Sports Medicine & Orthopedics Clinic; Hinterland Restaurant and Brewery; and TitletownTech, a partnership with Microsoft offering digital innovations and expertise to northeastern Wisconsin through an innovation lab, venture studio and venture fund.
