SHEBOYGAN — A major redevelopment project is being proposed next to Rockline Industries on Maryland Avenue.
The redevelopment will create apartment units, community and amenity space and interior parking stalls at South 11th Street and Maryland Avenue in the current C. Coakley Moving and Storage building.
The redevelopment plans also call for a restaurant, marketplace and brewery. In addition, possible development may occur on the Sheboygan River but those plans are not clear in documents submitted to the City of Sheboygan.
The complex was originally constructed in 1920 by the Badger State Tanning Company after the company’s prior complex at the site was destroyed by fire.
The complex is a collection of several buildings built between the 1920’s and 1970’s that encompass the entire block bound by Maryland Avenue to the north, South 10th Street to the west, South 9th Street to the east and Illinois Avenue to the south. There is also a riverfront parcel to the east across Commerce Street.
In plans submitted to the city, KCG Development of Indiana plans to demolish non-contributing appendage buildings and reintroduce green space. New historically accurate windows and replace the broken collection that has amassed over the years and the building’s facade will be restored.
The company, KCG Development LLC, was formed in 2015 to develop, acquire and rehabilitate and own apartment communities in the United States. The company was formed by it’s founder and president, RJ Pasquesi, after tenures with a couple of companies in the real estate industry.
