Welcome to Oak Creek’s Lakefront Escape!

To grant Oak Creek improved access to our scenic lakefront, the Lake Vista redevelopment intends to turn a former heavy industrial area into high-end apartments or condos, local shops, a number of office buildings, and an expansive public park. Nearly 55 acres of the 98-acre Lake Vista property remain available for private sector development.

Oak Creek plans to invest $14.6 million in new infrastructure to serve Lake Vista. To date, our investment includes new roadway connections from State Highway 100 and State Highway 32. That construction is scheduled to complete by the end of 2016.

Environmental Remediation in Progress

The Lake Vista redevelopment is located at the former Du Pont Co. chemical plant. Oak Creek took a sustainable long-term mindset and elected to carry out significant environmental work with the support of Du Pont. The cleanup to transform contaminated soil into a beautiful site along the Lake Michigan shoreline is underway!

Key Features:

  • Mixed-use development
  • Located between Lake Michigan and S. 5th Ave., north of E. Ryan Rd.
  • Opens expansive views of Lake Michigan
  • Infrastructure will be complete by the end of 2016
