PIKE PLACE DRIVE – OFFICE COMPLEX 110 N Pike Lake Dr. Hartford, WI
Design 2 Construct has proposed the development of an office complex at the northeast corner of Pike Place Drive and East Sumner Street (STH 60).
• The complex would be made up of three office buildings with a total square footage of approximately 20,000 square feet. The developer plans to build the southernmost building first, with each building having a unique use. The buildings would each have at least two tenant spaces available for lease.
• The City approved a concept plan for the office development in November 2019, and the project is proposed to begin in early 2020. The site plan shows the proposed buildings. The eastern portion of the lots would be undisturbed wetlands. The buildings are planned to have a minimalist look and a modern design. The single-story structures would have covered entry canopies and a patio facing south for employees. A concept rendering of the first building is shown as well as the proposed layout of the entire site.
Glenn Hepfner Inc is planning to build a new 12,000 SF addition. The new addition will be located southwest of the main facility, and will be used as a cold storage facility. Two storage areas within the building addition will provide the needed additional storage. The surrounding area, which is already commercial and industrial will have little impact from the addition, which was approved in September 2019 and planned to be built in the spring of 2020 .
The metal fabrication company has been in business since 1975 and was originally located in Sussex, WI. The company has continued to grow over the years and in 2004 it began building their 80,000 SF facility here in Hartford.

Craft Retreat House – 209 W Lincoln Ave, Hartford
A “Craft Retreat House” was proposed by Jean Harley. The home provides a place for small groups of people to spend time gathering to do crafting projects. A concept new to Hartford, the home provides refuge from the day to day and allows people to “get away” and go crafting. Similar “crafting homes” currently operate throughout areas of the State of Wisconsin. Groups of up to 12 people can rent the home for their projects. Classes and open sewing nights are part of the offering. The Craft Retreat House is also available to rent for meetings, showers, and church related retreats. The project was approved in January 2019 and has begun operation. The conditional uses permitted have some restrictions to maintain the residential atmosphere of the neighborhood.
