Construction on major development plan for Downtown Kenosha could begin this fall

The City of Kenosha Plan Commission will consider a major Downtown development plan covering numerous city blocks Thursday evening.

The plan is a partnership with Cobalt Partners, LLC of Milwaukee and C. D. Smith, a general contractor and development firm based in Fond du Lac. The comprehensive plan covers nine blocks of Downtown Kenosha bordered by Sheridan Road on the west, 52nd Street on the north, 56th Street on the south and Lake Michigan on the east.

The plans were released Wednesday evening.

Mayor John Antaramian said the plan is the result of collaborative efforts by the city and a development team to craft a mixed-use district taking advantage of the lakefront, existing attractions and amenities, as well as multi-modal transit access including Metra train service from Chicago.

“The city has been planning for the next generation of downtown development for a number of years,” Antaramian said in a media release Wednesday evening. “The development team brings a fresh perspective to Kenosha, backed by significant experience in public/private partnerships throughout Wisconsin and in other states.”
