Former KMart building in La Crosse to come down

Development plans to be discussed at meeting at Central High School Wednesday

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – The former KMart building on La Crosse’s South Side is being demolished.

A director with Three Sixty Real Estate confirmed the plan with News 8 Now.

KMart closed its doors in 2017.

The building has been vacant since March of 2021 after U-Haul briefly considered moving into the site.

Having a “clean slate” will help shape future plans, developers say.

“The reality is that building is 60-some years old, and it’s just at the end of its useful life,” said Jeremy Novak, development director for Three Sixty Real Estate Solutions.

You can learn about the plans for the building during a public engagement meeting at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at Central High School.

Anyone coming to the school is required to wear a mask.
