The Village of Ashwaubenon is receiving a $250,000 state grant to help construct a building with apartments, a climbing gym and leasable commercial space located near Lambeau Field in the Sports and Entertainment District.

The Community Development Investment Grant from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) will support development of The Common Place, a five-story, mixed-use building. Its 88 residential units, which will include studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, will help address the need for mixed-income housing in Ashwaubenon.

“While Lambeau Field is an excellent foundation and centerpiece of the area, there’s plenty of room for growth in the Village of Ashwaubenon,” said Missy Hughes, secretary and CEO of WEDC, the state’s leading economic development organization. “We’re thrilled to help make the Village more of a year-round hotspot with residences, sports and pedestrian activity.”
