GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A five story mixed use apartment building has gotten initial approval from Green Bay’s Redevelopment Authority.
The City Deck Commons is an 84-unit complex with two levels of underground parking. The ground floor is dedicated for retail use. The apartments are expected to be higher end, market rate units.
It’s located along the Fox River at Main and Washington.
Downtown Green Bay Inc. Executive Director Jeff Mirkes says this almost puts in “exclamation point on the waterfront”, but says there are many other properties in the downtown that are being eyed for residential development. He says don’t be surprised if more will come to fruition this year.
Mayor Jim Schmitt has been working on downtown economic development since he arrived in office, and this is the next step.
“This is really where we want to be as a city, and this is something that has taken a little bit longer than anticipated, I’ve been working at this for ten years now” Schmitt said.
Construction will begin this summer if the city council gives final approval.
