Park East area prep work begins for arena parking ramp, other projects

Quote:
Work has begun to prepare the Park East strip for development tied to the new Milwaukee Bucks arena, a project that will create temporary traffic congestion for some downtown drivers.

Construction of both the parking structure and practice facility is to begin this summer.

The street, which replaced the former Park East Freeway, is a main route in and out of downtown — particularly during the morning and afternoon rush hours, and for events at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Bucks arena construction slated for July start

Quote:
Construction on the new Milwaukee Bucks arena in downtown Milwaukee is scheduled to begin in July, and a construction manager for the $500 million project is expected to be named in the next few days, according to Bucks officials. Construction is scheduled to be complete in August of 2018, in time for the start of the 2018-19 NBA season.

Sewer relocation work is currently underway, so construction can begin in June on the six-story parking structure, which will be located between Juneau Avenue, McKinley Avenue, Fifth Street and Sixth Street, just north of the new arena, said Marc Farha, executive vice president with Greenwood Village, Colo.-based ICON Venue Group, the team’s owner’s representative.

the carroll properties project for a 37 story tower at 700 E Kilbourn may be dead, but it looks like new land enterprises (the folks who currently own the site) are gonna try to resurrect their plans for the 19 story bookends project on the site.

the last public renderings from several years ago weren't pretty. let's hope they do some heavy redesign work.

Finally!!!

Property sale, construction start coming soon for Couture



Quote:
Whaley-Smith said he expects the agency within the next few days to approve the arrangement, allowing the county to avoid making the $8.4 million payment.

Barrett had hoped to finish razing the transit center by spring before Summerfest and other events begin at nearby Maier Festival Park. He wants to begin construction by fall on the 44-story apartment tower, which would take three years to complete.

Whaley-Smith said Barrett can begin demolishing the transit center as soon he takes possession of the property in late April.

Bookends is not the best but I don't mind it. I do wish it was a bit taller though.

It's looking like Bookends, the Couture, and Goll Mansion site will be the next round of towers.

On that note, I wonder what's going on with Mandel's project.

So maybe we won't have to wait until August...

Sale of Couture site wins federal approval

Quote:
Barrett will close on his purchase of the property from the county on April 29. Ideally, he will move into demolition right after closing, but said he might wait until August so it doesn’t interfere with Summerfest.

Work is already underway but now an official groundbreaking is set...

Arena construction to begin June 18

Quote:
The Milwaukee Bucks have set a date for construction to begin on the team’s new downtown arena.

According to president Peter Feigin, the Bucks plan to start construction on the arena June 18, about a month sooner than previously planned. The team has scheduled the arena to be complete in August 2018, in time for the start of the 2018-’19 NBA season.

Construction also is slated to begin in June on the six-story parking structure and on the new 55,000-square-foot training center. Feigin also said the Bucks are getting closer to securing a naming rights sponsor for the new arena.

Hot downtown office market could spark another new tower

Quote:
David Pudlosky, of JLL, agreed with Landowski that another new tower will likely be built downtown. He said there are a handful of sites ready for development, and developers are in a race to land the deals.

“Whether it’s Doug Weas, Joel Lee, Marcus Corp. or Irgens, they are all capable of doing it,” Pudlosky said. “It’s just a matter of who is going to win the business.”

The potential anchor tenant that is being sought after this time is Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren. The Milwaukee law firm has hired a Chicago-based real estate broker and a Chicago architectural firm to explore its office space options before its lease at 1000 North Water expires in 2019. The firm, which leases 114,000 square feet, is the largest tenant in the 283,000-square-foot building.

Third Ward office building

Quote:
Milwaukee-based real estate development firm Irgens plans to build a five-story office building in the city’s Historic Third Ward. The 168,000-square-foot building, at 100 N. Young St., will include ground floor retail and could be ready by late 2017. Construction is expected to begin by the end of this year.

Streetcar line construction expected to begin late summer


Quote:
Proposals are due June 1, and will be decided on in late June. Construction for phase 1 is expected to start in late summer 2016, and continue through 2017 and into 2018.
More companies moving downtown

Quote:
Downtown Milwaukee is on a roll. The apartment development boom is showing no signs of slowing down. Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. is building a $450 million office tower on its headquarters campus. Construction will start soon on a new $500 million arena.

On top of all that, an increasing number of companies are choosing to move their offices to the downtown area.

I don't think I saw this posted yet but this one should be starting soon...

New two-story restaurant building proposed for Brady St.

Quote:
A nearby east side Qdoba, at 2228 N. Prospect Ave., will be closed to make way for a six-story, 80-unit upscale apartment building planned for the former Prospect Mall parking lot.

Joseph Property Development LLC plans to break ground on that project in late spring, said owner Robert Joseph.


Right down the street from this project which should be starting in June...

Shops of Grand Avenue owners reveal redevelopment plans
Office space would replace food court; grocery, urban market planned

Quote:
The new owners of the Shops of Grand Avenue unveiled their vision Monday morning for the future of the downtown Milwaukee mall, which they believe will satisfy what the community has been asking for and what the market will support, while bringing the struggling mall into the 21st century.

The ambitious plan includes up to 120,000 square feet of office space on the second and third floors, which will eliminate the food court.

A grocery store is being sought after in the former 34,000-square-foot Linens ‘n Things space and an urban marketplace is planned on the mall’s first floor.

Nothing special but here's a couple updates on some of the random infill projects going on downtown along the river...

Laacke & Joys Demo



North End IV (you can see NML's tower in the background)





North End III and Rhythm



River House





Belay



Just a VERY small sample of the development boom happening in Brew City right now. I know that not too many people visit this thread as most Milwaukee members are on SSC but if anyone has any requests on projects they would like to see updates on I am more than happy to provide pictures. I live downtown so it's pretty easy for me to go out and snap some pics.

Would love updates on the Northwestern Mutual Residential Tower and the Westin (know they are probably limited views at this point, but nothing for the tower available and that 833 east webcam for the Westin is way too limited of a view at this point)

Personally hoping to get back up there in May at some point to walk around and take a ton of pictures!
