A Dairy Queen Grill and Chill restaurant similar to this one is slated for construction early this year in the area of Sixth Street and Highway 36 in Waterford. The village will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the restaurant and two other nearby developments on Jan. 22.

Dairy Queen, condos, business park included in event

The Village of Waterford will host groundbreaking ceremonies for a trio of new developments – including a Dairy Queen restaurant – on Wednesday, Jan. 22.

A new business park and condominium complex round out the new developments. The projects will add an approximate value of $4.2 million to the village property tax rolls, according to village officials.

All three proposed projects are located along Highway 36 in the area between Sixth Street and South Seventh Street. The groundbreaking ceremonies will begin at 1:30 p.m. in the area of South Seven Street.

The new Dairy Queen Grill & Chill, which is slated to open in spring, is a family affair, according to a news release issued by the village. Brothers Bill and Bob Kulesa started their business four years ago when they opened a new DQ Grill & Chill in Stillwater, Minnesota.

After the successful location in Stillwater, they looked to expand the business and developed a new entity, Wisconsin based Gold Star Development Group, according to the village.

ADI Business Park

ADI Business Park, located off of Highway 36 north of The Equitable Bank will consist of four 10,000-square foot warehouse buildings divided into 2,000-square foot insulated rentals units. Each unit will have an office, bathroom and an overhead door. They will begin construction spring of 2020.

Allesee Development Inc. (ADI) is a family owned and operated real estate and land development company, incorporated in 1988, that has since developed a long history in Waterford.

Deer Trail Condos

The Deer Trail Condos are described by the village as an upscale, 16-unit residential development.
