- A new apartment complex in Antigo will house 50 families close to downtown businesses. The Pebble Ridge Apartments will be rented out to people based on their income.
City leaders believe there's a big need for more housing in Antigo. A fire last year destroyed more than fifteen apartments. Also, the growth of some businesses is bringing more employees to the city.
"Manufacturing is driving some of that. We've seen in recent times, the Volm Plaspack Company added a project not far from here. It brought in potential 20 new employees," said Antigo's director of administrative services, Mark Desotell.
The apartment complex will offer some services like free high speed internet to all of its residents. There will be various apartment sizes for different families.
"There are going to be eight separate units with an interior courtyard, clubhouse, playground. The units will be from one to four bedrooms," said Desotell.
Twelve of the apartments will also be accessible for people with disabilities.
