Cannery Redevelopment District
The Cannery Redevelopment District, established in May 2008, is located north of Madison Street along the West Bank of the Chippewa River. The City of Eau Claire adopted the West Riverside District Plan in 2011, which includes the 30-acre Cannery Redevelopment District. The Redevelopment Authority of the City of Eau Claire adopted the Cannery District Redevelopment Plan in 2017.
The area from Madison Street to Platt Street is planned to have an urban feel with a mix of office and retail. The development is to complement the existing historic buildings remaining, including The Brewing Projekt's new location at 1807 Oxford Ave and the Eau Claire Children's Theatre at 1814 Oxford Ave. A paved trail was installed in 2017 to connect Madison St with the High Bridge.
The Redevelopment Authority continues to negotiate the purchase of property within the District with just a few parcels remaining. Look for acquisition to be completed by 2020.
