Volkswagen plans to expand its facility in Pleasant Prairie.

PLEASANT PRAIRIE — The Plan Commission approved preliminary site and operational plans for the proposed expansion for Volkswagen Group of America LLC Monday night.

According to the plans submitted by Verde 88th Avenue LLC, the expansion calls for an 86,808-square-foot warehouse distribution addition to the property at 11589 88th Ave., in LakeView Corporate Park.

The plans include site grading, underground utilities, and footing and foundation work.

Volkswagen has occupied the current 250,366-square-foot building at 11589 88th Ave. since 2003, which is used for warehouse and parts distribution, said Jean Werbie-Harris, the village’s community development director.

The facility employs 40 full-time workers on a single shift at the facility, and there are no plans to hire new employees with the expansion, she said.

Construction is proposed to begin at the end of the month and is expected to be completed in the spring.
