GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A city committee has approved funding for several enhancements to the downtown Watermark project.
The Green Bay Redevelopment Authority voted to set aside up to $205,000 for the aesthetic improvements.
"There was some concern about how the building looked to the person going down the street or bridge," says committe chairman Harry Maier. "We want this building to be a standout building, in that, people are going to drive by and say 'Hey that's a great looking facility.'"
The improvements include canopies at ground level, a stone sill to the 5th floor window, stone sills to newly installed windows, stone medallions and a cornice along EIFS roofline.
Maier says developer John Vetter will be asked to cover some of the cost at the RDA's next meeting in October.
The changes were approved quickly since contractors have 8 weeks left to finish the project.
