Site plan backed for new Lambeau Field data center

ASHWAUBENON – A site plan to construct a new office/data center at 800 Mike McCarthy Way to support Lambeau Field operations was recommended Tuesday, June 4, by both the village’s Site Plan Review Committee and the Plan Commission.

Community Development Director Aaron Schuette said the new building would be located where an existing metal panel building will be torn down.

“The Packers, through Lambeau Field Redevelopment LLC, will be constructing a single-story building on the site that will house basically a data center for the different wireless telecommunications companies…,” Schuette said. “Those different telecom providers will have their own units in there to house their data telecommunications facilities.”

Schuette said the new building, which the plans from the architectural firm Somerville call for being 22,415 square feet, needs to be located in close proximity to Lambeau Field.

He said the structure would include a mix of exterior building materials, including brick and an aluminum storefront glass system on the south along with a 3-foot wainscot of brick with concealed fastener metal panels and an aluminum storefront glass system on the sides.

“We’re really trying to make it fit into the overall look we’re going for in the Sports and Entertainment district,” he said.

Schuette said the conditions of approval include concealed fasteners for all metal wall panels and concealing all ground-mounted and roof-mounted mechanical equipment.

Because of high pH soils in the area, he said the village forester recommends not planting Armstrong Freeman maple trees and using other tree species.

Schuette said the site plan requires final approval from the village board because the property it is in the Sports and Entertainment zoning district.
