    First announced: http://www.patriots.com/stadium/index.cfm?ac=stadiumnewsdetail&pid=18991&pcid=42
    Also: http://www.boston.com/sports/football/patriots/articles/2006/01/25/new_role_for_krafts_developers/

    Expected ETA:
    Hall at Patriots Place: Fall 2008
    Retail: Beginning Fall 2007
    Hotel: ??

    Besides the new Pro Shop construction, there's also a bunch going on in the parking lot where the new stores will be. Because of the construction, you currently can't enter into the parking lots through the Route 1 side - you have to loop around back.

    Patriot-Place Website:
    Coming Soon

    Patriot Place is retail and living revolutionized; a one–of–a–kind super-regional outdoor shopping and entertainment destination that follows an established reputation of greatness and success. There will be nothing else like Patriot Place in New England – or America, for that matter.

    Developed by The Kraft Group and designed by award-winning architect Arrowstreet, Patriot Place will offer the best in shopping, entertainment and dining in a dynamic and unique environment.

    Retail:
    Known so far:
    -Bass Pro Shops
    -Circuit City
    -Christmas Tree Shops
    -Bed, Bath, and Beyond

    Hotel:
    4-star.

    Patriots Pro Shop:
    According to an e-mail sent out recently, the Pro Shop will be moving into a new building located adjacent to the old one, but facing towards the east. The old building will likely be demolished, according to this drawing.

    I really don't like the idea that visiting teams can be staying at a 4 star hotel right next to the field.

    With the Patriots owning it, it can conveniently be booked up each time an opposing team is in town. Besides, the Patriots will probably be staying there as they stay in a hotel during game weekends. Currently, they stay at the Sheraton Four Points in Norwood on game weekends.

    My only hope for the hof is that somehow they make room for guys like Julius Adams and Darryl Stingley, there are a bunch of others but these guys come to mind and hopefully the get their due.

    Road improvements are mentioned and being paid for by the developers (Kraft). I am prety confident things will not get any worse and may actually improve.

    I look forward to the phase when they offer condo's for sale - count me in.

    Imagine living there and how awesome game days would be.....hmmm, sleep till noon, roll out of bed and be in my seats for kick off!!

    Still, it makes sense to do what they are doing. Hope the traffic improvements help.

    I was really pleased on how the parking and enviorment improved over the last stadium. Last yr was rough parking, if your not there early enough your parking in p-10 which sucks.. Im glad there improving the area, but the parking thing has suffered..

    I like how the area is now, like it's in the middle of nowhere.

    For those of you who go to the South Shore Plaza, imagine that atmosphere around Gillette.

    I am not so sure this place is going to take off. Foxboro is not a central, convenient location. Sure, it's great to go to a couple times a year for a ball game, but I doubt many people will want to do their routine shopping there...

    It's not that far away from the Wrentham Outlets and the Emerald Square Mall, which both make pretty good business.

    Funny that Cory Dillon is one of the first images you see in the video. Is someione trying to tell us somthin?? Someone tell Mike Reiss to check the locker room and see if his nameplate is up!

    Trying to capitalize on the patriots popularity year round only make business $ense for the Krafts. And if they can convive 5% of the tailgating crowd to bring it inside to the bars that has to be good for the bottom line.

    1) Outlets are a different story. People will travel hours to go to outlets, as demonstrated by all the Bostonians in Kittery, ME. But Patriot Place is going to be retail.

    2) Emerald Square is right near Rhode Island's population center. Foxboro is in no man's land.

    I doubt there will be too much gameday impact other than some changes to parking. People aren't going to fight gameday traffic to shop.

    What this is about is the other 350+ days a year when there is no game.

    It makes sense that the traffic and business challenges are all about non-game dates. If anything, I'd expect the gameday traffic snarl to be improved if there is somewhere to go that encourages a come early and/or stay late plan. Plus every full hotel room=one less car.

    I'm curious about the effect on training camp, too. (That represents most of my time in Foxboro!) More temptation to make a day of it if there are restaurants, etc. on site.

    Judging by the stores that have signed on so far, I think youre right. Imagine having a mall with the Christmas Tree Shop as an anchor?

    40,000 visitors a day?

    Is it just me or does that number seem a little overly ambitious?

    Bass Pro Shop is the unique store of the group so far.....Davios and other restaurants along with the Patriot Hall of Fame along with a jazz/night club and four star hotel will equate to a lot more cash for the Kraft group.

    I think this thing is a cannot miss.....wish I could invest.

    I'm curious as to how they will handle parking at Patriot Place on gamedays - charge $35 for it? How will that be handled by the stores leasing space?

    Perhaps there'll be validated parking or somesuch thing? It sure doesn't look from the drawings that there's much parking near the stores in any case, except across rt 1. Do they expect shoppers to walk that far?

    The retailers will love the fact that there's 4 home games between Thanksgiving and Christmas! :D

    After reading more about it, obviously it has potential...It just sounds odd that the Christmas Tree shop is there....I guess they couldnt lure Jerry and his Building #19 chain?

    I hear that.. Christmas Tree shops paying that kind of rent is weird, in this kind of mall......Maybe Jerry is next LOL.

    What will they do on home games, as far as parking goes though - interesting.

    If the picture is even close to accurate, 90% of the foot traffic into the stadium will be coming in one gate, from the Lighthouse side. The ubid entrance will not have much in the way of parking near it, except for the private lots south of the stadium.

    Leave your tailgate extra early if you want to be in your seats before kickoff!

    Any of us who went to Green Bay and took the tour along with the Packer hall of fame and enjoyed the atrium with it's restaraunts built into the side of Lambeau field last fall couldn't help but be impressed. The tour guide told us that it is only closed Christmas and Easter. This looks much more ambitious. 40,000 a day ......Easy! I can't wait for the Hall of fame and Bass pro shop to open . This will be a huge success. My only question is on the effect on parking.
