Packers Begin Stretching Land Developments North of Lombardi Avenue

The Packers continue purchasing land around Lambeau Field.

For the first time, the Packers have purchased property to the north of Lombardi Ave., a sign that the team is looking to extend its Titletown developments in a new direction.

According to a Fox 11 report, the Packers purchased two acres of land on the corner of Lombardi and Ridge Road, land that includes a funeral home, for a price of nearly three times its assessed value, approximately $2.65 million.

The property had been listed for sale, and the Packers took the opportunity to snatch it up. At the moment, the team stated there are no immediate plans for development, as land remains under lease to the funeral home. The owner of the funeral home emphasized there are no plans for the business to go anywhere.

However, the fact that the Packers have purchased the land shows there is an interest in continuing team-owned development in the area, and that the interest stretches beyond the current boundaries of the Titletown District.

Phase 2 of the construction of the Titletown District remains in progress.

No Plans? Try Lambeau Tower and Hotel. Complete with landing pad.

They already have a hotel in the Titletown District. So you can rule that out. I know the ara very well growing up about a mile away. There's a church very bear that which i attended as a child.

It was a good idea to purchase the land while they could. The funeral home won't be forced out ... yet. But maybe 5 yrs from now. I'm sure soon enough the Packers would prefer not to have a funeral home across from Lambeau.

Maybe they all golf together at the Oneida Country Club.

Probably the funeral home won't have its lease renewed. Since the Packers paid three times the assessed value of the land and one would assume that the monthly/annual rent takes the value into consideration, it has to have a lousy ROI.

Official NFL burials from the new Green Bay Packers funeral home. This is a great way to prove your fandom for eternity while potentially providing an income stream for the team long after you’re gone.

You can get the "Cremated and have your ashes spread across Lambeau Field" package. Some packages will include a Sky Box that's been converted to an mausoleum for thousands of 1 oz. "Mini Urns". You can even get the 1 oz. Urn "Field View" positions, but their pricey, and there's a waiting list. You need to first pay an Urn License fee, and then the annual ticket prices for the games. Game prices for a 1 oz. mini Urn without field view start at $389.00 per game, and tickets with a field view escalate up to $525.00 per game.

There will also be Burial Packages, that are simply having the "Celebration Service" inside Lambeau field, and then hearse service to local cemeteries for burials.

The packages that will be presented are countless, and some include guest appearances for current and former players, which will concludes with meet and greet/photo/autograph sessions for the families. I understand the cost of the "Brett Favre" guest appearance ceremonial package is $50K, with the possibility of a No Show.. Just saying..

The fact that Lambeau is nestled on the edge of residential neighborhoods and people sell parking in their driveways and lawns is part of the mystique and connection of the community to the team. Hopefully that won't be lost as they push the boundaries of the stadium north.

If they built the Packer's version of a kwik trip on that site, it could be the highest grossing gas station/convenience store in the state
