Marina District Plans By Local Businessmen

A group of local businessmen led by Mike Ansay has presented plans for the Port Washington Marina District. Included in those plans is a year-around facility and green space on the North Slip parking lot; that proposal is in-lieu of The Blues Factory if that project does go ahead as planned. Also, the former Victor’s site and City car/trailer would be replaced by as many as 20 row houses or Brownstones. On the block to the north, a 44-unit apartment building is proposed to replace the homes currently there. Finally, the Newport Shores site would be redeveloped as an entertainment district that may also include a hotel, condominiums or time shares. The value of the proposed projects would exceed $26M.

E. Pier Street Redevelopment

At its May, 2016 meeting, the Plan Commission reviewed plans for the redevelopment of the 300 block of E. Pier Street. Both plans received approval by the Commission. One plan presented by Engberg Anderson Architects is for a 44-unit, 4-story apartment building that would be constructed on the site of the former Victor’s property and the municipal boat trailer parking lot. The project is valued at $5.8M. View the plans here. The other plan presented by Stephen Perry Smith Architects is a three level, 11-unit owner-occupied townhouse condominium project located only on the municipal boat trailer parking lot. This project is valued at $4.3M. View the plans here. The Common Council review both plans and decide on which project and developer to work with.
