Thank you for the wonderful photos, Bucksfan! It's great to get the comprehensive update!

The Hammes building flew below my radar. It's nice to see an extra building I wasn't even aware of!

Honestly, it doesn't even paint a full picture of what is currently happening in Brew City. I probably only got half of the projects I intended to before I ran out of daylight. I'll try and get the rest at some point. Don't forget, Milwaukee is about to break ground on a handful of additional towers in the coming months. Things are getting exciting.

Thanks. I'll put some riverfront shots on the agenda for next time.

Large new residential building planned in Third Ward

Quote:
The project, planned for a site southeast of East St. Paul Avenue and North Jefferson Street, will take up the entire eastern half of the block, said Matthew Jarosz, coordinator for the Third Ward Architectural Review Board.

“Robert wanted to be very careful about the information getting out,” Jarosz aid. “It looks like a very fine project. It is multiple stories and is a very large building.”

The review board will consider the proposal on Wedensday.
Excited to see these renderings.

Proposed Third Ward apartment building includes retail, We Energies substation
Robert Joseph hoping to break ground on project this year


Quote:
Milwaukee developer Robert Joseph is planning a seven-story mixed-use development at the southwest corner of East St. Paul Avenue and North Jefferson Street in the city’s Historic Third Ward neighborhood.

The development includes 60 apartments, two-stories of 3,500 square feet of retail space at the north corner and three stories of above-ground parking on the south side of the building.

In the middle, on North Jefferson Street, would be an 11,000-square-foot We Energies substation.
Not what I picture when I hear "large" development but I like it. Great infill and fits into the surrounding neighborhood.

Interesting. I've never heard of a mixed use Residential/electrical substation. I'll be interested to see how it works out.

Foxconn announces North American headquarters in Wisconsin
Quote:
Taiwanese electronics manufacturer Foxconn said it would establish its North American corporate headquarters in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, following the purchase of a building in the city's downtown area.

In a statement, Foxconn said more than 500 people would work at the seven-story building in downtown Milwaukee.

The announcement comes almost a year after the company disclosed plans to invest $10 billion over four years to build a 20 million-square-foot LCD panel plant in Wisconsin that could eventually employ up to 13,000 people.

Taiwan-based Foxconn, known formally as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd, is the world's largest contract electronics manufacturer and employs more than a million people.

Convention center expansion concepts presented to WCD board

Quote:
A consulting firm hired by the Wisconsin Center District presented three concepts to expand the downtown Milwaukee convention center Friday, but there is still no funding plan in place for the $247 million to $277 million project.

Tampa, Florida-based Crossroad Consulting also told Wisconsin Center District Board members that a larger convention center would need 1,000 new hotel rooms within walking distance to be successful.

Foxconn says downtown Milwaukee building will be its North American HQ

Quote:
“The only thing he pointed out that was wrong was the height of our building. It should not be here. It should be all the way up here,” Woo said, pointing closer to the height of the U.S. Bank building.

Asked afterwards if those jokes were aspirational or if the company had specific future building plans, Woo said it is a goal, but the current building is also a good fit. He did note the parking lot adjacent to the building gives Foxconn options.

“There is plenty of opportunity for us to redevelop this place,” he said.

Later he added he would like to see a skyscraper.

“I don’t think there is anything stopping us, the sky is really the limit,” he said.
Stay posted. Foxconn is dropping hints of a new skyscraper in Milwaukee's future.

Well we will never get a NHL team thanks to Chicago being afraid of the competition and refusing the waiver. It's still a shame that they're destroying a perfectly good building in the Bradley Center.

Also, per JSOnline, https://www.jsonline.com/story/money...ilt/988718002/ they're showing the cards that it appears that the only hole being dug will be to bury the project.

Tallest Wood Building in Western Hemisphere

Quote:
New Land Enterprises has announced a bold plan to build a 21-story mass timber apartment building in East Town. If completed, the building, known as Ascent, would be the tallest timber structure in the Western Hemisphere according to the company.

The news comes just months after New Land released plans to build a seven-story mass timber office building, the city’s first, along the Milwaukee River in Westown.

Mass timber is an engineered product made by combining layers of lumber into a stronger material. The material is capable of building much taller buildings than conventional wood construction methods because it only chars (rather than burning up) in a fire and offers enhanced strength.

The engineered material offers substantial environmental benefits over steel or concrete. Because of its reduced weight, it also can reduce the size of a building’s foundation allowing faster construction. Construction speed is further enhanced with the use of prefabricated components. Building codes have been recently updated to allow for the new material to be used in the United States and a number of projects have been built in the Pacific Northwest.

Planned to rise 238 feet, the tower is being designed by New Land partner Korb + Associates Architects and engineering firm Thornton Tomasetti. The team will present the project at the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat annual conference in Dubai on October 20th.

The tower is planned for a long-vacant site at the northeast corner of N. Van Buren St. and E. Kilbourn Ave. The site at 700 E. Kilbourn Ave. is currently a parking lot and a vacant commercial building. City records indicate a New Land-affiliate has owned the 28,504-square-foot lot since 2011.
