Fresh off the 2016 season, the Detroit Lions has unveiled plans for $100 million in renovations to Ford Field including some major upgrades to the football stadium’s bars and lounge areas.
Rossetti architects has been tapped to do the updates and help the Lions better utilize around 210,000-square-feet of space within the stadium. The renovations include:
- Complete suite renovations with two levels of finishes, identified as the Red Zone suites and the 20’s suites
- Redesign and re-brand of The Corner Lounge which will become Corner Bar and celebrate great players from the franchise’s past and present
- New concept club with communal experience and no assigned seating
- Renovated current and addition of new spaces (Grid Iron Club and Terrace Suite) for suite and club members on the north side of stadium
- Fully updated club space on the south side (currently Huntington Club) of stadium that will feature addition of Loge box seating
According to Curbed Detroit, the designs are meant to reflect different aspects of Detroit history with the south side aesthetics taking cues from the original Hudson’s warehouse and the north side offering nods to mid-century modern designs and automotive history. The north side will also feature a full kitchen. The renovations are expected to be completed ahead of the 2017 football season. Scope out the renderings below:
This is the latest in a series of updates to Ford Field. In 2015, the MGM Grand Detroit Tunnel Club received a major $2 million revamp that included new bars, tables, seating, video screens, Detroit-themed décor, and additional field-level seating for members.
