Advisors plans a second-floor addition to their
building, which will soon be surrounded by the Foxtown
development along Mequon Road.
MEQUON — Plans for the Foxtown project in the Mequon
Town Center neighborhood have taken several big strides
Mequon Common Council Jan. 9 unanimously approved
rezoning for the 13.97-acre project.
Mequon Planning Commission Monday gave its unanimous
approval for a building plan amendment for an expansion
of Spectrum Investment Advisors, whose office building
will be surrounded by other portions of the Foxtown
Tollefson, Mequon’s director of Community Development,
wrote in a memo to the Common Council that Foxtown will
remove nonconforming uses and “blighted conditions” in
redevelopment of this area will drastically change the
aesthetics of Mequon Road and Industrial Drive, both
primary arterials with a great deal of public
visibility,” she wrote.
Foxtown, the third major development project in the Town
Center, will include:
A 7,000-square-foot brewery and restaurant, which likely
will be built first in a restored mid-1800s brewery.
A 13,000-square-foot multi-tenant building that will
include a restaurant, first-floor retail and
second-story office space.
A three-story 96-unit apartment building that would be
located on the site of the former school bus terminal.
The plan calls for 32 one-bedroom, 32 two-bedroom and 32
three-bedroom apartments. The apartments, which will be
built in two 48-unit phases, will include a front yard,
street-facing walk-up porches, underground parking and
an indoor pool.
A Foxtown Brewery restaurant. The 18,000-square-foot
building will be located in the former lumber shed along
the railroad tracks.
Three mixed-use buildings that will include retail,
offices and extended-stay apartments.
A “pocket neighborhood” with 21 single-family lots.
Homes built on those lots are expected to be valued at
about $500,000 each.
Preliminary work on renovating the brewery has started.
Building permits will be obtained soon and demolition
work is likely to get under way this month.
related project, the Planning Commission on Tuesday
unanimously approved a building plan amendment for a
1,777square-foot second floor addition for Spectrum
Investment Advisors, 6329 W. Mequon Road.
Owner James Marshall told commissioners he moved into
his new building in 2012 with 10 employees. It has grown
to 22 employees managing $2.2 billion in assets. The
expansion, which will include a conference room and
space to accommodate more employees, will allow growth
to 35 employees.
Spectrum building will find itself in the midst of the
Foxtown project when it is completed. Marshall said now
is the time to complete this addition to take advantage
of synergies with Foxtown, which include making
improvements to an existing wall and shared parking.
Zader, Mequon’s assistant director of Community
Development, said the shared parking agreement will work
well for everyone. Spectrum will use its lot during
daytime business hours, while demand for space with
Foxtown will occur in the evening and on weekends.
goal is to start construction May 7 – and we certainly
want to have that shared parking agreement in place
before then,” Marshall said.
