It will all start in the north end of the stadium, which will soon feature a completely reimagined plaza leading into the stadium.

There will also be a new and enhanced lighthouse, which has been the stadium's signature feature since its opening. The lighthouse is being enlarged to a 218-foot structure and will include a 360-degree observation deck at the top.

A 75,000-square-foot glass enclosure — which will bridge the gap between the East and West Putnam Clubs, the Dell Technologies Suite Levels, and the upper concourse — will open year-round as a function space.

The $225 million project is scheduled to be finished ahead of the 2023 NFL season.
