WEST BEND - Club Ten 06 will soon be no more. Plans are moving ahead for the site to become the home for a Forward Dental Office.

According Washington County Register of Deeds records, LCM Funds 19 Kenosha LLC and the Dale H. Sterz and Shirley A. Sterz Trust purchased the property at 1006 S. Main St. on Sept. 10 from MDR Properties LLC for $320,000. In 2011, the property was sold to MDR Properties LLC for about $233,000.

Adam Williquette, of Anderson Commercial Group, handled the sale. He said it’s possible the building will be torn down before winter.

“The group of investors who bought the property have already worked out plans for building the new offices” Williquette said. “It might not be possible for construction to start yet this year, but I think they at least want to try to remove the old building before the end of this year.”

West Bend City Administrator T.J. Justice said those involved have gone before the Plan Commission to discuss the proposal.

They got an erosion control permit so they can start work, but they need a building permit, Justice said. “Along with building, the permit would also allow demolition of the old building.”

Justice said the building will be about 2,400 square feet and worth about $700,000.

“Five new jobs are also expected to be created with the new business,” Justice said. He said during an August meeting the Plan Commission did have questions about the building’s appearance because Main Street is a key corridor to the city.

“They want to make sure the architecture has some appeal to people entering the city,” Justice said.

Harry and Joanne Zimdars bought the former Coachman House from Glenn Peterson in 1997. In July 2011, Meredith Immekus took over and renamed the business Club Ten 06. In 2014 Immekus closed the business and put the restaurant up for sale.

Williquette said Anderson-Ashton Design/Build of New Berlin will be in charge of construction. According to a company website, Forward Dental has 31 locations in eastern Wisconsin.

Calls to Forward Dental were not returned by deadline.
