The mixed-used development will include five condo units
with first-floor, enclosed twostall garages and a 5,250
square-foot retail space at the sidewalk/street front.
PEWAUKEE — Pewaukee’s downtown
could have a little more flavor this summer as Spring City Wine
House in Waukesha might open a location in the Beachscape
condominium development on Wisconsin Avenue.
The Beachscape development located between 161 and 125 W. Wisconsin
Ave. includes five housing units with three retail spaces on the
first floor. Beachscape Developer Joe Grasch said he’s in talks with
Spring City, although an agreement has not been finalized.
“We are talking to a few vendors like Spring City that are looking
to take half or as much as the whole space,” Grasch said.
Spring City owner Tom Hockel chose not to comment on the possible
development other than to clarify that if the business did reach an
agreement with the developer, Spring City would remain in Waukesha
and open a second wine house in Pewaukee, he said.
“The business does really well here,” Hockel said. “We love Waukesha
and we have no intention of leaving.”
Pewaukee President Jeff Knutson was thrilled with the idea of Spring
City coming to Pewaukee.
“I’m hoping they come,” Knutson said. “I’m looking forward to it and
I think it would be a definite asset to the downtown. I think they
would do very well in that area, and I think it would bring more
Grasch said the first-floor retail portion of the development and
the sidewalk should be completed by Memorial Day. His goal is to
have the remaining portion of the building fully constructed by
Labor Day, with tenant occupancy as early as June or July, he added.
