Foxconn has acquired The WaterMark, a six-story building along the Fox River in Green Bay at 301 N. Washington St. and plans to occupy 16,700 square feet of space.
The Green Bay center will extend the reach of Foxconn’s Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park in Racine County and its innovation centers in Milwaukee and Eau Claire. It is intended to build upon Foxconn’s technology base in areas such as imaging, education, healthcare, entertainment and sports, security and sustainable systems.
