Planners approve lot for Kiley Way building

PLYMOUTH – The Plan Commission Thursday took the first step toward a new commercial building on Kiley Way on the city’s east side.

The commission approved a certified survey map to create a separate building lot on the parcel which is now home to a strip mall north of Wal Mart on Kiley Way.

Derrek LeMahieu of Abacus Architects explained that the property owner is seeking to create a separate 1.5-acre parcel on the northwest corner of the property.

“The purpose is selling off lot 1 (the new lot) in the northwest quarter of the property. One of the tenants in the current multi-tenant retail building wants to build a stand-alone building,” on the new lot that would be created, LeMahieu explained.

In Motion Dance Studio, currently located in the existing retail building, has indicated it plans to build a larger free-standing facility on Kiley Way.

Mayor Donald Pohlman did caution LeMahieu that the city would not be likely to authorize access to any building from the eastbound lane of Kiley Way, only from the westbound lane.

He said the city’s policy is not to allow any curb cuts through the parkway in the middle of Kiley Way to minimize turns across traffic on the bypass road. “That’s why we put that in there,” Pohlman said of the median.

Two expansions – of a storage facility and an industrial facility – also won commission approval.

A 2,000-square foot addition to Heartland Video Systems, 1311 Pilgrim Rd., was approved contingent on final approval of a drainage plan by city staff.

“We are running out of space in our current building,” Heartland Vice-President and General Manager Bill Tessman told the commissioners.

Because the addition, on the south side of the building, would take away some existing parking spaces, the plan also included additional parking spaces to the south of the building as well.

“The company that did the original building is doing the addition as well, so the colors will be all the same, the addition is going to be all the same and look all the same,” Tessman assured the commission.

He noted that the company expanded its building previously in 2006 “and we’re going to do it again.”

The commission approved plans for the final In-n-Out Storage buildings at 423 E. Clifford St.

The first building on the site was approved a year ago by the commission, with the provisions that final plans for the rest of the storage buildings would be brought back to the commission for final approval.

Jacob Rosbeck of Quam Engineering in West Bend presented the final plans for In-n-Out owner Louis Prange. He noted that the third and fourth storage buildings on the west end of the parcel had been shortened up somewhat, to only 26 units each, but that otherwise the plan was largely unchanged from the preliminary one presented a year ago.
