CONGRATULATIONS TO THE 513 ON BEING THIS YEAR'S NEW FACES OF DOWNTOWN - RENOVATION AWARD WINNER!
The New Faces of Downtown - Renovation Award is presented to a business that has invested in the physical appearance of the building they call home in our Downtown neighborhood.
There's no doubt that The 513 is a well-deserving recipient of this award. Starting in the summer of 2019, The 513 renovation project consisted of redeveloping 513 W. College Ave (formerly/commonly known as the Wichmann Furniture Building) into 2 floors of event space, as well as 2 floors of office space on the top two floors of the building.
The final product resulted in a beautiful 1920s era event space for both private and public events. These events include weddings, corporate functions, concerts, and trade shows. The officially opened their doors for the first time in October of 2020.
After completing phase 1, the opening and activation of the event space, the next phase is opening and leasing the office space on the 3rd and 4th floor.
One of the great features of The 513 is that it typically brings out of town guest to the middle of Downtown Appleton and showcases a beautiful event space, while still allowing guests to see the vibrancy and culture of the downtown area.
The ownership group of The 513 all grew up near or around Downtown Appleton and have always been "downtowners" at heart. They are passionate about the current status of Downtown Appleton as well as what it can become!
The renovation of 513 W College Ave has left Downtown Appleton with a gorgeous new event venue that is bound to host many visitors and community members at their location where they will be able to experience all that makes Downtown Appleton One Great Place!
