The Detroit Lions finished a $100 million renovation of Ford Field ahead of this NFL season. New amenities range from new food options on the concourses to a revamped premium seating inventory.
A complete overhaul of the FF&E in all existing suites at Ford Field highlights the premium renovations. New layouts, furniture, lighting, touch-screen ordering systems, and induction-top counters have all been added.
The 112 suites on the stadium's south side were redesigned with an industrial inspiration, paying homage to the signature J.L. Hudson Co. warehouse that adjoins with the stadium.
In terms of new offerings, 12 theatre-box-style suites and four-seat loge boxes, both firsts in Ford Field, have been installed, and have garnered attention for their design elements, winning the ALSD Spotlight award for Best Theatre/Loge Area.
On the north side, 17 suites and multiple clubs have been added, including the Corner Bar and Grill, which features a 90-foot bar, a wall of lockers painted in Lions colors, and huge video screens throughout. It's the stadium's first sit-down restaurant for non-premium seat fans.
The project’s design-build team was led by Detroit-based firms ROSSETTI and Turner Construction.
