This is cool. A conceptual rendering at the site at Clybourne and LMD of a 50 story building just to show what could be built there.

While I appreciate the optimism about that beautiful building, it is difficult for me to feel any sort of enthusiasm for that parcel or any neighboring parcel given how I feel that the citizens of our beloved city have been routinely bent over by the likes of Marcoux, Abele, Barret-Lo, Marcus, POP, Foxcon, Johnson Controls, et al.

Things that will happen in Milwaukee before this parcel (or the Couture) are developed;

Giannis signs a 10 year deal at max money
Bucks win a NBA championship
Yelich signs a 10 year deal for Mike Trout money
Brewers win a World Series
Prohibition returns
Bars run out of pull-tabs

Milwaukee Streetcar's Lakefront Line Delayed By Construction Project

Quote:
After being pressed by Bauman for a date, Marcoux said he wanted to give Barrett until mid-2020 to break ground on the Couture before moving forward with another option for the streetcar.
Can't LOL at this enough.

For once, I'm with Bauman. Rick Barrett is making the city and county look like bigger fools than they already are.

This is the next step in the Bucks' plans.

Potential groundbreaking right after the DNC!

Delayed Couture high-rise owner hasn't yet paid the downtown project site's $400,000 property tax bill

Quote:
Richard Barrett, who operates Barrett Lo, said the overdue bill was "an oversight on our part that we were made aware of on Friday."
So shady. Must be nice to be sitting court-side at the Eastern Conference Finals while your almost half a million delinquent in property taxes. Milwaukee's leaders should be ashamed of themselves.

Looking forward to those lots surrounding Fiserv to be filled.

Just got word from a close friend and reliable source that American Family is moving it's offices to the Mandel building in the Deer District. Apparently they are adding a vertical addition. She was not sure of the height though.

With the Couture dead and still a few months removed from Ascent's groundbreaking, there's been relatively no news regarding new Milwaukee skyscrapers/high-rises, so here is a high rise being built in suburban Wauwatosa...

St. Camillus breaks ground on residential tower project

This project was supposed to exceed 20 stories but NIMBYs helped shut that down and we ended up with a 15 story tower.

Even so, we all know it's not worth reading too much into. Barrett is probably just looking to buy time until his next annual "Breaking ground next summer" announcement. I can't believe people are still buying into this BS after all the lies Barrett has sold the city on since the beginning of this disaster.

But then, you have always been the pessimist.

Tell you what. I live in Spokane, Washington now. I'll keep reading, you keep watching. I bet I'll know first.

In any event, life is too short and it's all so good. One project out of dozens hasn't yet happened, but even it is looking good.

You just keep on being you. Eventually, you will get there.

I am out of here. Good bye.

I'm actually more prone to believe this because Barrett has actually been refusing to comment on this or provide their own "construction is imminent" PR release. $20 Million of equity isn't even that much money to come up with when the government is giving you that much more more and the land for pretty much free...
