From former school site to new Verona community hub

VERONA, Wis. (with excerpts from WMTV) – The former site of a Verona elementary school is set to be transformed into a community hub, developers announced Monday.

The Alexander Company and Steve Brown Apartments explained that the pair has a public, private partnership with the City of Verona and has started construction on the former site of the Sugar Creek Elementary School on Verona Avenue. 

The new community hub will extend Verona’s downtown with enhanced public and cultural spaces, boutique retail options, mixed-income housing, and more–bringing in multi-generational, pedestrian friendly activity that draws people in as shown in vision sketches and a master plan developed with Vandewalle & Associates, Inc

The vision exudes “city scene” vibes with street-facing shops, as well as multi-family, mixed income housing. A public park and plaza would front Verona Avenue.

Verona Mayor Luke Diaz said the project would allow more people who work in Verona to have the chance to live there.
