The City of Green Bay is going through a renewal with the development of the riverfront, rehabilitation of its historic buildings, and the cultural, residential, and retail renaissance of its downtown district. The Whitney School site is located between the downtown district and a quieter residential district, creating a unique planning challenge of negotiating between these two different scales. The site covers an entire block and is anchored by the historical Whitney School.
The master plan included redevelopment of the school into 20 market-rate residential units that retain the distinct ambience of the school building. The surrounding block was developed into 18 townhome condominiums. The mix of unit types will create a dense urban fabric that balances urban downtown living with an intimate residential environment.
