A vacant downtown business is getting primed for a major face-lift.
Stevens Point-based DB Green LLC purchased the storefront space, previously owned by Jim Laabs Music, earlier this year. The developer plans to rework the main floor into office and retail space.
Luxury apartments are planned for the second floor and will include rooftop patio space.
Officials from DB Green will be on hand at Monday’s City Plan Commission to request a conditional use permit from the city for the luxury apartments.
Plans for construction also include restoring the storefront exterior to an early 1900’s state with fluted columns and glazing. Those featured will need approval from the city’s Historic Preservation/Design Review Commission at a later date.
The City Plan Commission meets Monday at 6 PM in the Lincoln Center, 1519 Water Street. The meeting is open to the public.
