War Eagle apartment, retail combo proposed for Black River property off causeway



A $21-million apartment and retail complex is being planned in La Crosse’s River Point District.

City committees are looking at designs for the War Eagle Building.

The project would offer two floors of commercial business space, along with 52 apartments on the upper floors.

The six-story building, to be named after the old War Eagle riverboat, is proposed for a lot next to the Black River.
