Blackhawk Junction evolving into housing, commercial court


Things are happening in the development of the current Blackhawk Junction property in Prairie du Chien. Last week, the former True Value greenhouse area was flattened and asbestos abatement started inside what remains standing of the one-time Commerce Court strip mall. By Dec. 1, the plan is for that structure to be completely gone. In its place will eventually be multi-family housing and garage parking (as pictured in these renderings). Groundbreaking is expected no later than June 2022. The building that houses Mississippi Meats, Suppz Gym, Royal Bank, etc. will eventually be razed as well to make way for commercial development. There is a slight chance that portion of the project could see groundbreaking in 2022, but plans are that work must start no later than August 2025.
