Plans for Racine's hotel and event center continue to move forward

June 21, 2017

The public has gotten a look at what a new hotel and event center in downtown Racine could look like, although how to pay for the facility is still unknown.

Rendering of the proposed hotel.

Brookfield-based Hammes Company, the owner’s representative, and project architect, Denver-based Sink Combs Dethlefs, shared architectural designs and renderings of the project during a joint Redevelopment Authority and Common Council Committee of the Whole meeting on Tuesday.

The project includes building a 208,000-square-foot building that would include a three-story, 3,500-seat event center and seven-story, 150-room adjoining hotel located at 322 Lake Ave.

In February, after the city learned the Milwaukee Bucks would not locate its D-League team in Racine, Mayor John Dickert said he would still move forward with plans for the hotel and event center.
