Developer’s increased interest in Racine ranks as one of the year’s top stories

RACINE COUNTY — EXCERPTS FROM THE JOURNAL TIMES: Driven in large part by the Foxconn project, 2018 brought a surge of outside investment in the greater Racine area by developers–an area in which Vandewalle & Associates has been working to provide economic development and redevelopment opportunity analysis, district and area-wide planning, and implementation services since 2012.

The greater Racine development explosion is ranked as the No. 8 story in The Journal Times news staff’s list of the Top 10 news stories for 2018. 

Such unprecedented flurry of activity promises to re-energize properties and buildings that have lain dormant for many years, and even decades in numerous cases. In particular, the projects involve housing creation, the reuse of former industrial buildings and Downtown-area properties.

The list of those projects now includes Tannery at the Edge of the River; several Sixth Street housing projects; redevelopment at the Walker Manufacturing site at North Beach; Gold Medal Flats and proposed redevelopment at the Ajax site–both in the Uptown area; a development partnership converting several downtown commercial buildings into housing.
