Downtown Appleton has seen tremendous growth, having completed a nearly $6 million makeover in 2005, which transformed our main street into a dynamic, pedestrian friendly destination for visitors from throughout the region. And that's just the beginning. There is over $100,000,000 of new construction in our downtown!

Downtown is quickly becoming the Fox Cities specialty retail center. With stores filling niche markets like apparel, accessories, shoes, art, books, flowers, gifts & specialty, grocer & deli, home accessories, appliances & furnishings, jewelry, music, pharmacies, photographers & photofinishing, tobacco & liquor as well as salons & spas!

Among the many exciting shops, restaurants and renovations, are several major projects including our two thousand seat Performing Arts Center, a market-rate residential project that includes 150 residential units plus mixed retail and plans for an Exhibition Center.
