New developer named for $30 million Kaukauna hotel, apartment project

KAUKAUNA – After supply chain issues and lack of funds pushed back construction on a $30 million hotel and apartment development in Kaukauna, a new developer is taking over part of the project to speed up its completion. 

Harvest Development LLC was the original developer for the hotel and apartment projects, but the apartment development has shifted to Dreamville Kaukauna LLC. 

“Harvest Development has a number of projects in the works with the city,” Kaukauna Mayor Tony Penterman said in a statement to The Post-Crescent. “To devote more time to those projects they are letting another developer take over the apartments.”

During Kaukauna Common Council’s April 19 meeting, council members unanimously voted to shift the apartments developer’s agreement over to Dreamville Kaukauna. 

At a previous council meeting, Penterman told The Post-Crescent the project was getting a new developer after Harvest Development couldn’t get funding for the full project.

The proposed Edgewater Pointe Apartments will have 101 market-rate units.

Dreamville Kaukauna is set to begin construction of the 101-unit apartment complex located at 250 Lawe Street in the next few months, according to Kaukauna Director of Planning and Community Development Joe Stephenson.

Ground breaking on the hotel and apartment hasn’t been finalized with either developers.

“It might be May, it might be June,” Stephenson told The Post-Crescent on Friday.

Harvest Development will continue its contract for the Sleep Inn & Suites by Choice Hotels.
