This historic government building was recently converting into 21 apartments. The building consists of one, two, and three bedroom loft style apartments with additional storage if needed. The building is located in the heart of downtown Wausau. Parking for the building is included in rent and is located in an adjacent parking ramp. This is the ideal property for any aspiring artist as it offers additional common space to display and/or create works.
