This one story garage building was historically part of a larger complex for the International Harvester Company in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Constructed in 1936, the structural clay tile building functioned as an auto truck sales & service garage.
It’s most recent use was as a retail furniture store. This project is the remodeling and historic restoration of the property, to be used as a bicycle/sporting goods retail and repair business, with the goal being an open and unfinished industrial appearance similar to service garages of the era, natural daylight to perform most tasks without artificial lighting. The project utilized historic renovation tax credits as a funding source. Pete’s Garage was honored as a 2016 Build Wisconsin award winner by the Associated General Contractors of Wisconsin.
