The city is continuing their efforts to bring more life to Adams Street. The newly-renovated Hotel Northland opened up last month, and now Mayor Jim Schmitt says new RFP’s (Request For Proposal) are in the works with developers to see what new additions would fit best. Mayor Schmitt says housing should be one of the top things to consider.
“The [Adams Street] parking lot is just a great opportunity for economic development. If we could take out the Baylake Bank building that’s kind of old and tired and expand that whole footprint, we could get some serious density down there that would incorporate both housing and an office tower that would change the skyline in Green Bay,” Schmitt said during his Community Update on Local 5 This Morning.
Some housing that has already come to life in the city are the Whitney Park townhomes and 901 Main apartments. Schmitt commented on how the city is making strides in bringing more housing opportunities to the area, and he also expects more to come in the future.
Other topics included the Transformation House, and the mayor’s retirement party plans. You can watch his full Community Update by clicking the link above.
