This 16-acre site is located on the west bank of the Fox River in the City’s South Broadway neighborhood. This is a former industrial site that has undergone a complete city-led environmental cleanup. The site features a 200’-wide deep-water slip that effectively doubles the site’s water frontage, and allows it to accommodate a range of private and commercial watercraft. The site has panoramic views of the Fox River and , and is adjacent to the Mason Street Bridge – the city’s busiest with over 45,000 vehicles per day.
The site is bordered on the west by an active railroad line, and is just two blocks from the city’s trendy Broadway District which features many local restaurants and boutiques. The site also has an engineered seawall and features over 1100’ lineal feet of direct river frontage (2300’ including the slip). This is a spectacular “clean-slate” urban waterfront site that offers classic city ambiance and scenery.
Preferred development on this site includes a possible mix of urban housing and commercial and/or institutional uses. A public riverwalk or “strand” must be accommodated in the development the cost/responsibility of which can be negotiated in the development agreement.
