WAUSAU — Members of the city’s plan commission on Tuesday evening will discuss a proposal by Quantum Ventures to add two additional floors to a proposed commercial building being constructed on the city’s east riverfront.

Amended architectural drawings for the Riverlife Village’s commercial building are being presented to the commission during the group’s regular meeting. The original plans for the construction called for a three-story building with 45,000 square feet of commercial space.

At a March 13 meeting, Quantum senior project manager Mike Frantz told the city’s finance committee he was planning an expansion on the original plans, an announcement that took several council members by surprise. The new plans include two additional stories of 15,000 square feet each, adding an additional 30,000 square feet of available space to the building.

Architectural renderings from Mudrovich Architects are included in the packet for the finance committee and are available online.

City staff is recommending approval of the new plan, according to a memo from City Planner Brad Lenz.

The meeting is set for 5 p.m. at Wausau City Hall.

  1. That looks cool. Do not have a sense of how it will impact the view of the water, or any sort of environmental protections, but I am sure they are there.

  2. Any idea of the added amount of taxpayer $$$ for those two lovely stories, Shereen? Oh, and OF COURSE they approved it! It’s not their money, so why shouldn’t they?!
