This 30,754 s.f. (0.7 acre) site is located at the intersection of Main and Washington Streets at the foot of the City’s landmark Nitschke Bridge which has 18,000 vehicle crossing per day. The site has 193’ lineal feet or direct river frontage facing the CityDeck, and is within a few hundred feet of the new Children’s Museum. A new 9-story residential condo project is directly adjacent to the site. The site is also directly across the street from a new $50 million corporate office and research complex that will begin construction in 2012. It is one block away from a 680-space public parking structure.
The preferred use of the site is mixed-use with two-sided, ground-level retail taking advantage of both the riverwalk and the Washington Street frontages. Upper story uses could consist of a mix of housing or offices. The city would prefer to see a multiple story, urban building on this landmark site. Single use buildings, although not preferred, will be considered on the basis of exceptional design.
