Sturgeon Bay Gives Final Approval to New Apartment Complex

At its April 5 meeting, the Sturgeon Bay Common Council gave approval to the Final Planned Unit Development (PUD) to New Urban Focus, Inc., for its planned four-story, 35-unit apartment building on the site of the former Harbor Square Shoppes at 49 N. Madison Ave. The council also approved a landscaping plan for the site and vacated a pie-shaped portion in front of the site for the development, which is known as The Bay Lofts. The council also gave its approval to a third and final extension of the PUD for the Door County Maritime Museum’s planned maritime tower project. According to the extension request from Amy Paul, acting executive director of the Door County Maritime Museum, the extension is needed so the museum can reach its goal of having 75 percent of the construction cost before construction begins in April 2017. The council approved the mayoral appointment of Cindy Weber to the Waterfront Redevelopment Authority, in place of William Galligan, who resigned. The council also approved a number of recommendations from the Harbor Commission, including docking improvements at Bay Shipbuilding, upgrades to electrical service at the East Side Dock at Graham Park to allow mooring of some of the tugboat fleet serving Bay Ship, addition of a new pier at Sawyer Dock for a variety of commercial vessels, a new steel dock wall along the 210 feet of water frontage at Harbor Business Center (253 N. 1st Ave.), and a potential docking facility on the south edge of Sunset Park.
