Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Eau Claire (WQOW) — Two vacant lots in downtown Eau Claire will soon be used to their full potential.

The most recent renderings for proposed developments for ‘Block 7’ and the old ‘Liner Site’ are being considered by the Eau Claire Redevelopment Authority.

Pablo Properties has proposed a four story office building, a new home for the Eau Claire Children’s Museum, and a public plaza with underground parking for ‘Block 7’. The company also wants to build a container park, using re-purposed shipping containers for retail and restaurant space, for the ‘Liner Site.’

Merge Urban Development wants to bring a residential building with 240 units, retail and restaurant space, along with a new Children’s Museum.

Also looking to build is Commonweal Development, proposing housing, a new Eau Claire Children’s Museum and a four story office building on the ‘Liner Site’. The company also wants to construct an elevated walkway, connecting the two sites.

Finally, Monarch Ventures is only looking to develop the ‘Liner Site’, where it’s looking to build a multi-use complex with a restaurant, apartments and an event space.

Eau Claire Community Development Director, Scott Allen, told News 18 converting ‘Block 7’ and the ‘Liner Site’ have potential to bring millions of dollars of investments to downtown.

The Redevelopment Authority will make a decision during its meeting Tuesday morning on which idea best fits Eau Claire.
