In May of 2021, the Green Bay City Council unanimously approved a development agreement with Merge to develop apartments and retail space along the Fox River in Downtown Green Bay. The future construction represents the first private investment in the Shipyard District.
Two buildings will be constructed as part of the private investment, strategically placed so each unit has river views. Common space between the buildings will be designed for gathering and connection to the riverfront trails with views overlooking the future City Park at the Shipyard. That City Park is expected to include floating docks, a kayak launch, outdoor recreation amenities and a plaza including a container park.
Approximately 4,000 square feet of retail space will also be available for lease at the Merge property. Architectural design is underway and with an anticipated ground-breaking in 2022.
The Stacks is a 6-story mixed-use building comprised of 180 residential units in the vibrant Port of Dubuque. The building will feature an urban courtyard, a residential fitness center, and both river & city views. The project incorporates CLT (cross-laminated timber) as a building material.
The brick facade and dark metal panels bring the historical elements of Dubuque’s built environment into a modern form. The development team took visions and guidance from the Port of Dubuque Master Plan (2002). The project capitalizes on community foresight and district investment strategy, driving greater utilization of the Port and downtown’s collective assets through residential density.
