Proposed New Uses For Old Sears Store

Kenosha---There's a new life for a vacant Sears store which closed earlier this year.

The owners of Pershing Plaza plan to divide the space three ways. The building's auto center bays will be removed.   

One of the tenants will be a fitness center. Two others are apparently still being sought, according to City Plan Commission documents. 

The Commission--at its regularly scheduled meeting Thursday--will be asked to approve facade changes.

Also Thursday, commissioners are scheduled to consider a conditional use permit for the former Vincent-McCall building on 22nd Ave. 

Bear Development is proposing to carve 60 apartments out of the 109 year-old multi-story, former factory building. In recent years, it's been used for a flea market.

According to city documents, the brick exterior will be cleaned and repaired, and the existing windows will be replaced in their current shape and size.
