Groundbreaking for the UW-Whitewater Community Engagement Center and new hotel at 10 am on September 11

The groundbreaking at the site is scheduled for 10 a.m. Tuesday, September 11.

Collaboration and creativity are driving the plans for the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Community Engagement Center and a new hotel on the city’s west side.  The site, located at 1260 W. Main St. (former Sentry Grocery Store), will soon undergo a major redesign that will include the construction of a privately owned and operated 70-room, Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott hotel on the south side of the property. The existing 52,000-square-foot building to the north, which previously housed the former Sentry grocery store, is being leased to the university and will be transformed into a state-of-the-art UW-Whitewater Community Engagement Center — a hub for faculty, staff, students and community members to engage in community-based learning, projects, and research.
