While the project spotlight is typically reserved for a project nearing completion with flashy photos, we are taking an alternative route this month to feature the Greeneway Infrastructure project in Kenosha, WI. This project may not be flashy, but it is impressive. The infrastructure project kicked off this month to help lay the groundwork for future development of the 240-acre site just off the freeway in Kenosha. The site is south of the Kenosha airport and is the former Dairyland Greyhound Park and was purchased by the Forest County Potawatomi Community in 2017.
Sagewind Development is the developer of the project, Greenfire is the construction manager and The Reesman Company is the excavation and grading subcontractor. Crews are actively hauling truckloads of dirt and debris to prep the site for sewer, roads and other infrastructure to get the site pad-ready for development. This site will be a mixed-use commercial and multi-family development that will bring jobs, housing and other amenities to Kenosha County. The infrastructure is expected to be completed late 2024.
Local officials spoke at the ground breaking ceremony on November 29, 2023 about how important this project is and how proud they are to work with the Forest County Potawatomi Community on this site. The Chairman of the FCPC, James Crawford, spoke about how the land used to be a Potawatomi village and how the Tribe intends to care for the land with respect and looks forward to providing the area with much needed resources.
