Wangard Partners: Highlands Business Park development moves into final stages of infrastructure site work

SUSSEX – Wangard Partners, Inc. (Wangard), a Milwaukee-based full-service real estate company, announced that the Highlands Business Park development is now approaching its final stages of infrastructure build. Located at the northwest corner of Highway 164 and CTH K, the development will substantially complete the current phase of infrastructure for the Business Park in November, including a regional stormwater retention pond and key road work. In addition, a 150,000-square foot multi-tenant industrial facility will be complete and ready for occupancy in December of this year. Full occupancy of the business park is expected in 2025.

“As progress is made on site, we look forward to having more tenants take advantage of this great location,” said Stu Wangard, President and Chief Executive Officer of Wangard Partners. “Highlands Business Park will be an incredible, regional destination for businesses within a wide range of industries.”

Phase B of the Highlands Business Park, nearing completion, will feature approximately 35 developable acres on the west section of the park and a second 5-acre regional stormwater retention pond, adding a valuable amenity for businesses located in the park. The developer is also completing construction of Highlands Court, which will connect Phase A of the Business Park with Phase B.

“Having off-site stormwater retention means that a property owner doesn’t have to build stormwater ponds on their individual site, which means lower overall development costs,” said Ryan Holzhauer, Director of Industrial Development and Acquisitions.

In addition to the 35 acres of available land in Phase B, Wangard has approximately 30 acres of additional land in Phase A of Highlands Business Park, which can accommodate retail, office, medical and senior housing uses. Unique features of Highlands Business Park include a 25% green space ratio and truck-friendly infrastructure.

Since 2020, Adron Tool Corporation and Kwik Trip have been among the first to occupy space at the Business Park. There remain significant opportunities for other tenants seeking space for light industrial, manufacturing, distribution, health services, senior housing, hospitality, and retail uses.
