Camera Corner expanding in downtown Green Bay
GREEN BAY – Camera Corner/Connecting Point plans to demolish part the former Schreiber engineering building at 503 Main St. and revamp the rest into a new engineering and design center.
Camera Corner CEO Rick Chernick said the company will tear down a significant portion of the existing 29,000-square-foot building at the northeast corner of Main and Madison streets in downtown Green Bay. Chernick’s sons, Ryan and Ben, and Mayor Jim Schmitt took the ceremonial sledgehammer to the east wall of the building during an announcement Monday morning.
The remaining 12,000 square feet of office space will be renovated to accommodate about 50 engineers. Some of the staff works out of offices across the Green Bay area, while others will be new jobs.
“Engineers are tough to find,” Chernick said. “We had to make a statement.”
Rick Chernick said demolition will begin immediately and that he expects the renovated engineering and design space to be ready for occupancy by October.
