A view of the Porters building under deconstruction, as seen Sept. 5 at the corner of Sixth Street and Wisconsin Avenue. The Porters building, 301 Sixth St., which started as five separate buildings when connected in 1939 and ultimately expanded to nine buildings and 80,000 square feet, will be “deconstructed” to clear the site for new development, said Micah Waters, who co-owned the former high-end furniture store and owns the property. The property represents nearly an acre in Downtown Racine, located between Sixth and Seventh streets, Wisconsin Avenue to the east and College Avenue to the west.
