The RDA has released their draft of approved for the Legends District just a couple blocks east of Lambeau field. The district calls for mixed use and refers strongly to the use of “Industrial Chic” design.
The full 118 page Master Plan can be found directly on the Green Bay website by clicking here (pdf).
The image below shows the boundaries of the district, which has remained mostly as vacant land and parking lots, but does call for the demolition of previously industrial use buildings that are still standing in the district. The biggest and most significant would of course be Saranac, which has prime frontage along Lombardi Ave. and is still operating today.
Several photo examples are given of what would ideally be developed in the district. Industrial chic, mid-rise mixed use style buildings are referenced throughout the report and some of the examples in the report are shown below.
This area has been ripe for development so it’s great to see the city finally creating a formal plan, which will hopefully provide a catalyst for future development, much like the Titletown district on the west end of Lambeau.
