From the Shipyard Development to new housing in Green Bay, Project and Program Manager Wendy Townsend gives Local 5 This Morning viewers a look ahead at what’s to come in the city.
The city is looking for input on how to shape the downtown waterfront for generations to come. A survey is open until Friday, January 18 asking community members what they’d like to see in this multi-use area.
New Housing Developments:
Designs for the Friary Flats have been approved, including 40 units. 20 of those new units will be in the Historic Friary Building on Irwin Avenue on Green Bay’s east side. The other 20 unites will be new townhomes.
The Friary Flats will sit on a four acre site ina great neighborhood near Astor Park, according to Townsend.
The Broadway Lofts project continues to move forward. The project proposes to bring 107 workforce housing units to the downtown location called the Railyard, which is near Titletown Brewing.
The lofts will have a modern industrial look. It’s an estimated $7.5 million development on an 11 acre site.
One year after the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act local investors and entreprenuers have the chance to learn how to take advantage of the changes through Opportunity Zones.
Baker Tilly and the Greater Green Bay Chamber will discuss updates on and implications of Opportunity Zones as well as issues including:
- Like-kind exchanges
- TIF and other credits
They’ll also discuss ideas on tax planning moving forward and how real estate and construction businesses may benefit from the tax law changes.
That event is Thursday, January 17 from 4 to 6:30 p.m. at Lambeau File. For more information visit http://www.sitelinkers.com/v_05165ae091ba/.
