Amendment backed to increase apartment space in Titletown District

ASHWAUBENON – An apartment building planned for Phase II of the Titletown District development would add 25,000 square feet more than originally planned under an amendment backed Tuesday, Sept. 3, by the village Site Plan Review Committee and Plan Commission.

The amended Planned Unit Development (PUD) Overlay Zoning District, if given final approval Sept. 24 by the village board, would add a floor to the building yet to be constructed and have a total leasable space of 185,000 square feet.

Community Development Director Aaron Schuette said the additional square feet would increase the number of apartment units from the 145 initially planned to 152, with the units also having more square footage.

“It will not exceed the 90 feet identified as the maximum (height limit) in the PUD,” Schuette said. “It still fits within that framework, but there is the 152 units, increase of the square footage, as well as some revisions to the signage component of the PUD…”

To accommodate the apartment’s added square footage, Schuette said additional parking is being added with a total of 1,894 stalls to be provided with 1,875 required.

Devin Carothers of Kaufman Development appeared before the committee and commission regarding the amended apartment plans.

Carothers said the building’s footprint will be the same with the apartment height being changed from five to six stories and staying under the 90 feet maximum allowed.

Titletown Tech signage

In other action, the committee approved allowing a blade sign and window graphics for The Turn by Topgolf, now open within the Titletown Tech building.

Schuette said the window graphics are designed to accommodate the game bays for the video screens used with interactive sports.

“The graphics are meant to help darken some of those bays a little bit as well as provide additional advertising for the business,” he said.

Schuette said village staff didn’t have a problem with the window graphics, which fit into the scheme of the PUD as well as Titletown in general.

Trustee Gary Paul raised concerns about the amount of signage, though he went along with the committee in approving it.

“I think it looks cluttered,” Paul said.

Charlie Millerwise, director of development for the Green Bay Packers, said the window graphics would highlight the interactive sports offered inside the building year-round.

Millerwise said the window graphics would be on the west of the building.

Village President Mary Kardoskee said she went there for the “soft opening” and found the business “really neat.”

“My grandson would love the zombie dodgeball,” Kardoskee said.
