GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) - Tuesday night, a grand opening celebration was held for the newest housing option in downtown Green Bay.

It's called Platten place. It's an old boarding house on the corner of Broadway and Dousman streets that has been renovated into more 23 apartments.

They range from efficiency studios to two bedroom units.

On Broadway Incorporated officials say they're the first of their kind in the city.

"It's really the launching pad for what's going to be kind of a new generation of housing options in the downtown area," On Broadway Inc.'s Chris Naumann says, "mixing new with the old, giving young professionals a very affordable and high quality option for downtown living."

Platten Place is the first urban housing project in the Broadway district
