Officials who expected several plans to choose from await Blues Factory proposal

  One of the two developers interested in buying a waterfront parking lot from the City of Port Washington has dropped out of the running, leaving Madison-based developer Chris Long and his plans for a Paramount blues-themed entertainment venue the only entity seeking the site.

    Randy Tetzlaff, the city’s director of planning and development, told the Community Development Authority on Monday that the second interested party decided to pursue a residential development instead.

    The city is working to help him find a site, he said.

    That leaves Long, whose February proposal to create the Blues Factory at the north end of the north slip was met with enthusiasm, as the lone developer seeking to buy the city-owned parking lot, Tetzlaff said.

    “We took a significant risk by showing the competition our hand (in February), and it looks like it paid off,” Long said Tuesday. “We welcomed the competition, but I thought we had a pretty good proposal.

    “We’ve got our team working on our proposal. We’re anxious to keep moving and be ready for the (Paramount Records) centennial in 2017.”
