For those who understand musical notation – or speak Italian – “Andante” means “at a walking pace.” It’s also the name of five-story mixed-use development poised to rise in the coming months between North Barstow and Farwell streets in downtown Eau Claire.

The name is both a nod to Eau Claire’s musical culture and a reference to the fact the building’s future residents will be within walking distance of numerous offices, restaurants, entertainment venues, and other amenities: Phoenix Park, for example, is just two blocks away.
