Over the past several years, Northeast Wisconsin has experienced a persistent need for existing industrial space, driven by growth in manufacturing, transportation and logistics, among other industries.

To help alleviate this growing need, the Door County Economic Development Corporation, in partnership with general contractor Immel Construction, leasing agent NAI Pfefferle and the City of Sturgeon Bay, are excited to announce a new 50,000-square-foot development project that is expected to break ground upon tenant lease execution.

With its impressive scale, the development — being built in the Sturgeon Bay Business Park — will be the largest industrial building in Door County available for lease.

“One of the main challenges that our area businesses face is the low supply of available industrial buildings,” said Michelle Lawrie, DCEDC executive director. “A project like this helps fill the gap, providing a valuable opportunity for companies to locate and grow in Door County.”

Divisible to 5,000-square-foot spaces, the building will have potential for various light and heavy industrial uses.

“We are excited to begin leasing this hard-to-find space in Sturgeon Bay, which will be a good fit for manufacturing, warehouse/distribution, assembly and other types of industrial and flex users,” said Eileen Pounds, real estate broker for NAI Pfefferle.

The project site is located on the east side of North Neenah Avenue on municipal property that the city is making available for the project. “The City of Sturgeon Bay is very excited to partner in this development and help make it happen,” said Josh Van Leishout, city administrator. “We look forward to working with the next great business that will occupy this space and grow in our community.”

“We believe that expansion of existing businesses is at the core of local economic development and community growth,” said Lawrie.
