The latest and greatest Scam-O-Rama Racine!

Rootworks - and Machinery Row.... were first!

In 2015 the City began the process of developing a detailed area wide plan for 325-acres of the Root River Corridor. Building on the RootWorks Plan, the RootWorks Area Wide Plan delivers detailed analysis, recommendations, and conceptual site plans to drive investment through continued revitalization and redevelopment efforts.


Machinery Row is an exciting, $65 million mixed use redevelopment of a formerly industrial portion of Racine’s urban riverfront–a 20-acre site that once housed the original manufacturing operations of J. I. Case Main Works, and Golden Books in more recent decades. Machinery Row will re-energize Racine’s historic riverfront, with adaptive building reuse that celebrates the area’s industrial heritage. Mayor John Dickert called this 20-acre project the largest redevelopment project in Racine’s history. Working with the City, Vandewalle & Associates authored the award-winning plan that will involve environmental remediation, renovate and adaptively reuse former industrial buildings, manage stormwater while improving water quality, provide new urban housing options, and add a dynamic riverfront promenade.
