Fiddleheads in 2016 purchased the 125-year-old building, located at N88 W16621 Appleton Ave., with plans to make exterior improvements and open a coffee shop there. Fiddleheads has since revised its original plans, and yesterday presented them for a third time to the Architectural Control Board, according to village records
Renderings by Milwaukee-based Galbraith Carnahan Architects show the company plans to build a rooftop seating area and a patio to the back of the building, and add landscaping, decorative lighting, signage, and artwork.
The project was approved by the Engineering/Public Works Department, Police, Fire and Community Development Departments, and the director of utilities.
Fiddleheads opened its first location in 1996 and now operates five Milwaukee-area cafés in Cedarburg, Mequon, Glendale, Thiensville, and Grafton.
