GREEN BAY, Wis. (NBC 26) -- The Green Bay City Council approved the development of a five-story, 172-unit apartment building downtown. The mixed-use building will also house a grocery store.
The complex is set to finish before the end of 2024, and will cost nearly $22 million. There will also be around 7,000 sq. ft. of retail space for other businesses. Housing will be set at market price.
Current developments located at 227 N. Quincy St., 221 N. Quincy St., 624 Pine St., 618 Pine St., 616 Pine St. and 605 Cherry St. will be repurposed for the new project.
Alders expressed concern with the apartments, because the building will not include subsidized housing in the midst of a reported shortage of affordable living spaces. The project did not receive tax credits, according to Mayor Eric Genrich.
