A newly proposed development for the Westside Waterfront will be up for discussion at Tuesday’s Sturgeon Bay Common Council meeting. Peter and Jen Gentry of WWP Development would like a 90-day exclusivity agreement with the city to look into developing a 5,000 square-foot building to serve as a community-focused plaza. City of Sturgeon Bay Administrator Josh Van Lieshout says the concept could nicely fit into the west waterfront plans.
The two-story building proposal would include concessions and bar-type services on the first floor for food carts with a second-floor patio. Services would consist of beverages, ice cream, snacks, beer, and wine. The request estimates that the development could add $750,000 to $1 million to the tax rolls and be open by May of 2022. The developers are also asking for an additional 30 days to the exclusivity agreement if more time is needed and substantial progress is made towards submitting a Request for Proposal (RFD) document.
