A luxury hotel and restaurant complex will likely not be the only new additions to downtown Wausau.

Mayor Linda Lawrence says the revitalization of the area is an on-going process that may include the renovation of the old federal building that sits across from the library.

"We've got a visit from the National Park Service next week on the 18th, I believe," said Mayor Linda Lawrence, "And they're going to walk through with some state historic folks and let us know what can and can't be done with the courtroom."

The mayor says the downtown renovation will be focused on housing in the future.

The city is currently working with several different developers who specialize in multi-family housing, rentals and condominiums.
