Heaven's (North) Gate

The Packers have released a rendering of a proposed North Gate at Lambeau Field. This is part of the stadium upgrade which will see a new sound system for the 2011 season, new video boards in 2012 and an unspecified number of new seats beginning in 2013.

Here's what the stadium looks like now as seen from Lombardi Avenue, or at least what it looked like when the Google Maps camera truck drove by:

Very nice. I continue to marvel at how the Packers managed to preserve the stadium's tradition while supplying the players and fans with a state-of-the-art facility. This is how it ought to be done; Yankee fans look at the renovated Lambeau Field and weep for their lost history.
