Farnam Flats coming to La Crosse’s south side

Building will bring residential, commercial space to near Gundersen Health System

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – A new building is coming near Gundersen Health System in La Crosse.

Developers, city leaders and officials from Gundersen came together for a ceremonial groundbreaking for Farnam Flats.

The new building will have 46 residential units.

There will also be ground floor commercial space at the corner of 7th and Farnam Streets.

Community leaders are excited about what the new building will mean for the community.

“Instead of $24,000 average household income per year, we can bump that up a little bit and provide an example of what’s possible,” said Phillip Ostrem, Joint Neighborhood Development Corporation president.

The project could take as long as year to complete.
