Our East Riverfront Redevelopment Area is the next-generation of Wausau's successfully revitalized urban waterfront along the Wisconsin River.  The area is located within the City’s funded tax increment finance district #3 with a range of City incentives and partnership opportunities available. 

We are currently completing an extensive river’s edge trail system, finishing miles of landscaped park amenities, building extensive ramp and surface parking facilities and creating parcels of all sizes for your restaurant, entertainment, residential, commercial office and mixed-use development opportunity. 

It's clear why Wausau has achieved an A+ livability score and why Wausau is the ideal home for your investment.
