Foxconn Technology Group selected Minnesota-based ISG and De Pere-based DeLeers Construction Inc. for design and construction work on its Foxconn Place Green Bay.

The firms will work on the 4,800-square-foot second floor of the WaterMark building in downtown Green Bay. Foxconn purchased the majority of the six-story building in 2018 for $9.25 million.

ISG, which has offices in Green Bay, and DeLeers will begin design conceptualization for Foxconn before submitting plans to the city for approvals. Foxconn’s announcement did not specify a timeline for construction beginning.

Foxconn says the new space would house company events and recruitment drives and would also be used for community engagement.

“From the start, the establishment of Foxconn Place Green Bay has been a key part of Foxconn’s long-term strategic initiatives, underscoring our continued commitment to the local communities in Wisconsin,” Alan Yeung, director of U.S. strategic initiatives for Foxconn, said in a statement.

When Foxconn originally announced plans for the Green Bay office in 2018, the company said it would be home to 200 IT employees. There was no word how many new jobs would be created with Foxconn’s new vision for the space.
