Site plan conditionally approved for Titletown office building

ASHWAUBENON – A site plan to build a five-story office building in the Titletown District received conditional approval Tuesday, April 16, from the village’s Site Plan Review Committee.

The proposed office building is planned as part of the Phase II development in Titletown District, west of where the Phase I development has taken place west of Lambeau Field,

It calls for a total height of 120 feet, which Community Development Director Aaron Schuette noted does not comply with the Planned Unit Development (PUD) ordinance for Phase II limiting the height to a maximum of 90 feet above grade.

Schuette said the initial concept for the office building planned at the southeast corner of Marlee Lane and Lombardi Avenue called for four stories, before the fifth floor was added.

He said the committee’s approval of a site plan with a five-story building would have to be conditioned upon a PUD amendment subject to review by the Plan Commission and village board.

In addition, Schuette said the additional height would also have to be approved by Green Bay Austin Straubel International Airport.

“We can approve it conditioned upon Austin Straubel airport review,” he said. “We would not issue a building permit until we have documentation Austin Straubel has signed off on it.”

Michael Cantor of Sterling Project Development, the project manager for the Titletown District, noted permission had been previously granted for a four-story office building.

The exterior building materials for the proposed 155,000-gross-square-foot structure, Schuette said, include a mixture of brick, aluminum window wall and architectural metal panels with concealed fasteners, which are consistent with the PUD requirements of Phase II and the overall Titletown design.

He said the site plan also calls for a rooftop patio at the penthouse elevation with a glass panel safety railing.

With the addition of a fifth floor, Schuette said the amount of parking has been recalculated with the necessary number of parking spaces to be provided.

He said the conditions for approval also include specifically stating a parking lot will be temporary until a grocery/retail development is built on the lot’s site, which will have a gravel/grass mixture for the parking surface like what now exists south of Lambeau Field.

It was noted during the meeting that Commercial Horizons and the Green Bay Packers will mutually own the office building.

Titletown Development LLC, the Packers’ real estate development arm, formally announced plans last October for the Phase II business and residential real estate development.

The plans call for building residences at the site along Brookwood Drive and include an apartment building and different styles of townhomes available for ownership.

Construction for the Phase II development is slated to begin this spring.
