Several upgrades are coming to the stadium, including a 22-story signature lighthouse with a 360-degree observation deck, a completely reimagined Enel Plaza, and a new grand staircase leading to the concourse.

Kraft Sports + Entertainment said fans will be able to see skylines of Boston and Providence from the lighthouse’s deck.

There will also be new premium spaces, such as the Bud Light Celebration Beer Hall and G-P Atrium, concessions, more restrooms, and fan amenities.

Gillette will have the largest outdoor curved-radius videoboard at a sports venue in the country.

“It is 60 feet tall and 370 feet long,” said Jen Ferron, chief marketing officer of Kraft Sports + Entertainment. “It has 20 million pixels which is the resolution of the HD board.”

Ferron, alongside Jim Nolan, chief operating officer of Kraft Sports + Entertainment, said the construction would be done by Sep. 10.

“It’s really thinking about the next 20 years of this building. There are a lot of venues our age that are looking to be replaced,” Nolan added. “We think we are as good as ever by investing in it, and this is the latest and biggest step in that.”

On Dec. 10, 2021, the Kraft Family said the construction would be completed before the 2023 NFL season — where the New England Patriots will honor Tom Brady at their home opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.
