Plans announced for redevelopment of idle Brokaw mill
Brokaw Development LLC, in conjunction with Niagara Worldwide has announced the orderly sale of specialty paper making equipment, followed by select dismantlement of idle bulidings as well as the planned redevelopment of the former Wausau Paper Mill Complex in Brokaw.
The 52 acre plant, located 5 miles north of Wausau, produced premium print and writing paper for more than 100 years. Details on the plan, sales and associated auctions of tools, materials and extensive plant systems will be available after Jan 1.
“Brokaw Development LLC is in the process of conducting initial tours of the former plant and welcomes any interest, ideas or partnerships in its reuse. The redevelopment possibilities are wide and varied based on domestic and international inquiries”, said Eric J. Spirtas, President of Brokaw Development LLC and Niagara Worldwide.
