GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — Green Bay is taking its next step toward developing a new downtown public market.

On Broadway, Inc. announced Friday it has successfully purchased Old Fort Square, which will eventually be redeveloped into the Green Bay Public Market.

The redevelopment of the building, located at 211 N. Broadway, is part of a more than $10 million project that is expected to attract nearly one million visitors to the Broadway District in downtown Green Bay annually.

On Broadway says this project also includes an apartment development on the city-owned parking lot behind Old Fort Square that would also provide structured parking. This phase of the project is expected to cost more than $21 million.

On Broadway says it's continuing to meet with prospective tenants. Anyone interested in tenancy at the Green Bay Public Market should contact Chelsea Kocken, the director of special projects, via email or at 920-680-1684.

Additionally, the Green Bay Public Market Facebook and Instagram pages are now both active.
