The Sturgeon Bay Plan Commission considered a preliminary plan for developing the old West Side School into an apartment complex at a Thursday meeting. Northpointe Development from Oshkosh purchased from Shipyard Partners who had bought the historic building from the city in 2004. The development calls for converting the old building along with an addition, according to Mayor David Ward, who also chairs the plan commission.
Ward says the plan is based on getting state credits for restoring a historic building and also credits for affordable housing. Developers Andy Dumke and Cal Schultz, will seek a Plan Unit Development (PUD) from the city by December when returning with detailed floor plans and lists of materials to be used for the project.
