MEQUON — Plans for Spur 16 are coming into sharper focus
with Friday’s announcement that Anodyne Coffee Roasting
Co. will open a café in the Mequon Public Market.
Milwaukee-based Anodyne is the first announced tenant
for the public market, which will be located at 6300 W.
Mequon Road and have approximately 10 vendors.
Mequon Public Market will be located next door to St.
Paul Fish Co., which will open its second restaurant in
the historic “smokestack building” that is part of the
planned 13.4acre second phase of the Town Center.
Developer Cindy Shaffer said a groundbreaking for the
project – which, when fully built out, will include 156
apartments, townhomes and additional retail – is planned
“After visiting the space and listening to the vision
for Spur 16, we couldn’t be more excited to be
involved,” said Matthew McClutchy, who owns Anodyne
Coffee Roasting with his wife, Lacee. “We look forward
to working with the other businesses in creating a
unique market that Mequon and all North Shore
communities will embrace as their own.”
Mequon Public Market has named Jenni Vetter as its
operations director, according to the news release from
Shaffer Development announcing Anodyne’s involvement.

Mequon Public Market will be the go-to destination for
great food, local produce, music and culture –
transforming the heart of Mequon, where the community
can come together,” Vetter said.
Anodyne, a small-batch roaster established in 1999, now
operates coffee shops in Bay View, Walker’s Point,
Wauwatosa and inside the Milwaukee Public Market in
Milwaukee’s Third Ward. St. Paul Fish Co. has been part
of Milwaukee Public Market since it opened in 2005.
Shaffer urged residents to “stay tuned” because she
expects to announce additional vendors that will be part
of the Mequon Public Market “in the coming months.”
Shaffer added she expects the project to begin moving
“full steam ahead” after the city approves details of
the storm water management plans for the development.
She said she anticipates an initial opening by late
summer or early fall of this year. The townhomes and
apartments will be complete by the spring or summer of
16 is being developed along Mequon Road just west of the
railroad tracks and the Ozaukee Interurban Trail. Much
of the site was previously used by Mequon’s Public Works
operations. The city purchased a property along Mequon
Road to complete the parcel.
Common Council selected Shaffer, a co-developer of the
Mequon Town Center’s first phase, from several
applicants to develop the site. The city sold the
property to her for $1 plus the $60,000 broker’s fee.
When fully built out, the site is expected to generate
$387,000 in property taxes annually.
16 is the latest step in the development of the
Center. Other projects that are recently finished or
nearing completion are The Reserve, an 81-unit apartment
development at 6835 W. Mequon Road and the 33-unit Dermond Property Investments project at 11130 N.
multifaceted Foxtown development on the south side of
Mequon Road will include a renovated brewery, other
restaurants, apartments and free-standing homes. The
initial phases of that project also are close to
