Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village
Once completed, the Johnson Controls Pro Football Hall of Fame Village will be a multi-use center, featuring a world-class hotel and conference center, an Academy of Excellence (corporate team building center), a Center of Athletic Performance & Safety, youth football fields, retail space, thematic restaurants, and residences for Hall of Famers and NFL Legends.
Investors believe these efforts will catapult the center, built in 1963, into a theme park destination for NFL fans and players alike. The multi-phased project will include fan engagement opportunities offering interactive games and rides developed by industry leader, Thinkwell. Johnson Controls announced a historic, 18-year naming rights deal in 2016, worth more than $100 million and resulting in the creation of the first ever “smart city.” The venture could be the largest tourism investment in Ohio’s history.
