Racine Uptown vision and plan implementation moves forward with new housing

RACINE, WI — An $18 million, 77-unit workforce housing complex is set to come to the Uptown area, a project that will preserve and restore the two historic Gold Medal Camp Furniture Manufacturing Co. buildings. 

“Here we are in this great opportunity to redevelop what was once a historic factory into historic housing to help build up Racine,” said Racine Mayor Cory Mason. “We just don’t build buildings like this anymore. These are places that people want to be. These are buildings that are worth saving.”

“The other reason it’s important,” Mason said, “is it’s another step forward to stabilize and revitalize Uptown. It’s one of our major commitment areas.”
