Kohler Co. is known for its long history of cutting-edge kitchen and bath, engines and generator products. But in 1981, Herb Kohler transformed a workers’ dormitory called The American Club on the headquarters property into a world-class resort hotel. It was later joined in 2004 by The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa in St Andrews, Scotland. Both properties, known for their high-level customer service and impeccable attention to detail, are recognized internationally for their hosting of golf’s Major championships. Destination Kohler is home to two public venues Whistling Straits and Blackwolf Run, which have collectively hosted the 1998 and 2012 U.S. Women’s Open, the 2007 U.S. Senior Open, the 2004, 2010 and 2015 PGA Championships and will host the 2020 Ryder Cup. The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa stands within 10 feet along the fairway of the 17th hole, the Road Hole, golf’s most famous hole on its most famous course. It also offers golf at the Duke’s, a special heathland course in the Kingdom of Fife. The resort has served as host-hotel for both the 2010 and 2015 Open Championship and the annual Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Both resorts have a Kohler Waters Spa, which are acclaimed for their innovative water-based therapies.

About Destination Kohler
Herb Kohler created Kohler Co.’s Hospitality & Real Estate Group with the reclamation of The American Club, the first and only Forbes Five-Star hotel in Wisconsin, and then built world-renowned championship golf courses, the Straits at Whistling Straits and the River at Blackwolf Run. The resort is named one of the top three golf resorts in North America, by Golf Digest Magazine. Kohler Waters Spa is the only Forbes Five-Star spa in Wisconsin and one of less than 50 in the world. The resort features 12 dining establishments from the Four-Star Immigrant to traditional pub fare at Horse & Plow and rustic country gourmet at River Wildlife. The resort is located in the Village of Kohler, Wisconsin, one hour north of Milwaukee and two and a half hours north of Chicago.

About Destination St. Andrews
A sister property, The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa in the birthplace of golf, St Andrews, Scotland, is Five Red Star rated and recognized as one of the most luxurious resorts in the world. This resort includes the world-renowned Hotel and Spa standing within 10-feet alongside the Road Hole fairway of the Old Course. Its Road Hole bar and restaurant can serve a Scotch from any of the 212 active distilleries in Scotland and offers a panoramic morning breakfast buffet second to none. Its Jigger Inn pub is visited by most players and caddies after finishing a round. Hamilton Grand, built in 1895 and renovated by Kohler in 2013, consists of 26 luxury apartments for sale overlooking the North Sea, the Royal & Ancient clubhouse, the 1st tee and 18th green of the Old Course and the community of St. Andrews. The Duke’s Golf Course and the Kohler Waters Spa serve both the residents of Hamilton Grand and the guests of the Old Course Hotel.

Packers Unveil Vision For Titletown District

The Green Bay Packers announced details Thursday for the master plan for the Titletown District, a destination area to be created on approximately 34 acres of land immediately west of Lambeau Field.

Building upon the success of Lambeau Field’s major redevelopment in 2003 and subsequent expansion and renovation completed in 2015, the planned Titletown District will maximize its unique location to attract more visitors to the area, spur additional regional economic growth, offer new amenities to residents and complement the greater Green Bay area’s draw as an excellent location to live, work and play.

Central to Titletown will be a planned 10-acre public plaza, a park-like setting with year-round, diverse programming that will feature fitness-related activities, cultural opportunities, versatile space for a variety of uses, a winter ice skating rink and team-inspired public art, in addition to festive gameday action.

Three key tenants in Titletown to be integrated around the public plaza will include LODGE KOHLER, a hotel  built  and  managed  by  Kohler  Co.,  a  Bellin  Health  Sports  Medicine  Clinic  and  Hinterland Restaurant and Brewery. These initial tenants will be located on approximately eight acres of land in Titletown. Future development on the remaining 16 acres calls for additional commercial and retail elements, as well as a residential component.

“We’re very excited to share our vision for the Titletown District,” Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy said. “The public plaza, with its size and location near Lambeau Field, will be a draw that is very unique in our area and a wonderful public space for our community.

“Kohler Co., Bellin Health and Hinterland are three great Wisconsin organizations that provide exceptional service in their respective areas. We’re thrilled they will be a part of Titletown. They each will bring more visitors to the area, serve our current residents and add to the draw for our community as a whole.”

Targeted completion is set for Fall 2017 for all initial components and planning for the development is already underway. Groundbreaking is anticipated for this fall with infrastructure and utilities serving as the first work on the area, land that stretches west along Lombardi Avenue from Ridge Road to Marlee Lane.

In addition to further planning and design by each of the three tenants for their facilities, the Packers will hold focus groups in the coming weeks with community stakeholders to determine the desired programming and activities for the public plaza.

The Packers will invest approximately $65 million in Titletown, with a cumulative initial investment by all parties to be between $120-130 million.

Kohler Co. will construct and operate LODGE KOHLER, a proposed Four-Diamond hotel within Titletown on Ridge Road. The new hotel will include a panoramic bar and restaurant, an indoor/outdoor garden pool, spa and fitness facility, and an outdoor area featuring a tented event space. LODGE KOHLER   will   provide   across-the-street   lodging   for   Packers   fans,   as   well   as   year   round accommodations and special experiences for those visiting Titletown.

“Kohler Co. is proud to collaborate with the Green Bay Packers to develop LODGE KOHLER in the new Titletown,” said Executive Chairman Herb Kohler. “The hotel will be our company’s fourth hotel in an iconic location adding to The American Club and Inn on Woodlake in Kohler, Wisconsin, and The Old Course Hotel in St. Andrews, Scotland. The new hotel will offer guests a high level of accommodation, excellent service and unique amenities.“We are committed to providing our guests who stay at LODGE KOHLER with a level of enjoyment and comfort that matches our company’s mission of contributing to a higher level of gracious living for those who are touched by our products and services.”

Bellin Health, the official healthcare partner of the Green Bay Packers, will operate a nearly 30,000 square-foot sports medicine facility within the Titletown District. The facility will be geared toward injury prevention, performance improvement, and treatment and therapy for injuries. It will include lab, x-ray and MRI, along with sports nutrition and sports psychology services. The clinic will be staffed by longtime Packers team physician Dr. Patrick McKenzie, as well as Dr. Jim Ebben, Dr. James Spears and other sports medicine specialists.

“The proximity of this location to the team’s facilities certainly heightens the level of convenience for Dr. McKenzie and the players needing injury evaluation and treatment,” said George Kerwin, Bellin Health president and CEO. “That being said, the most prominent aspect of our relationship with the Packers has been our shared desire to elevate the health and wellness of the community. This facility is an opportunity to share a magnificent sports medicine facility with athletes of all abilities.

“Through our alignment with the Packers, we are creating a destination for those in need of excellence in sports medicine.”

Hinterland’s new facility will be 20,000 square feet, nearly four times larger than the current Green Bay restaurant and brewery. It will feature a main floor brew pub and restaurant experience that pairs farm- to-table culinary experiences with gameday specialties. To engage the Titletown District’s plaza, the exterior walls will be retractable for outdoor experiences – complete with heated concrete and heat lamps for the ultimate tailgating, event or concert environment. The restaurant’s upper level will host an intimate 50-75 seat restaurant featuring Hinterland’s signature Green Bay culinary experience; and also have rooms for private events. The brewery will produce 20,000 bottles annually and have tours and tasting rooms for guests to learn about Hinterland and its unique approach to craft beers and the art of brewing.

“This is a big day for us,” said Bill Tressler, owner and creator of Hinterland restaurant and artisanal brewery. “My wife, Michelle, and I have been brewing for over 20 years and pairing our beer with exceptional food in our restaurant. This new location, across from Lambeau, will allow us to expand our brewing operation and create a craft beer experience that is unique to Hinterland and will wow our guests.”

Working with the Packers on the Titletown District are Sterling Project Development (SPD), a real estate advisory firm that provides comprehensive management services to owners, developers and investors on complex development projects; Rosetti, a global architectural design and planning firm with a portfolio of showcase properties spanning sports and entertainment, interiors, hospitality and retail; and Biederman Redevelopment Ventures, a firm that creates, redevelops, and operates parks, public spaces, and neighborhood streetscapes.

“A tremendous amount of research and planning has gone into the development of the Titletown District and the Packers are appreciative of the excellent work our partners have provided,” said Murphy. “We’re looking forward to our vision becoming reality, as well as the valuable assistance we’ll continue to receive from these firms as the entire development is completed.”
