Sun Prairie Stands Out at ICSC Idea Exchange in Milwaukee (City of Sun Prairie Office of Economic Development)

City Economic Development Director Neil Stechschulte's Thursday presentation on available retail sites was one of the only ones that included a major project breaking ground this summer. The confirmation of Woodman's beginning work on their 225,000 s.f. store in Sun Prairie's Westside neighborhood this summer (pending final City approvals) was easily the largest project that was being discussed publicly.

Several area Realtors and developers were in attendance, including Chad Fedler (Prairie Development Ltd.), CB Richard Ellis (Matt Paske), Lee & Associates (Dick Stern, Steve Doran, Todd Waller, and Chris Etmanczyk), Pat Schwartz (ReMax Preferred), Central Place Real Estate (Rob Zache, Jesse Schluter, and Kyle Robb), Deb Ersland (Best Real Estate Group) and General Capital Group (Michael Weiss). Stechschulte also met representatives from several retailers looking to expand in Wisconsin including CVS Pharmacy, Jersey Mike's Subs, Kwik Trip, and Dunkin' Donuts.

The day concluded with a reception and informational tables with both communities and retailers looking for possible deals. Information on Sun Prairie sites on the Westside, financial assistance programs, redevelopment areas on Main Street, TIF Districts and downtown space was made available for event participants.
