The city decided to move forward with plans to redevelop the former Wausau Centermall site.

The Foundry on 3rd project will be a 154-unit apartment complex that will provide space for smaller retailers and commercial spaces. Liz Brodek, Wausau’s director of economic development, said the project is expected to cost $40 million to $48 million.

Wausau Opportunity Zone, the local nonprofit that owns the venue, is partnering with T. Wall Enterprises on the project, which organizers say will revitalize the space and draw more people to Wausau and the surrounding area.
