This is a pretty big deal for Milwaukee getting a major company to move here. On the other hand. I do not like it when places take headquarters from other cities. Especially from other cities in Wisconsin.

As for the next neighborhood that will get gentrified I mean excuse me developed, well thatís really easy to see. As others have said, Lincoln village and Mitchell street are primed for development. It makes to much sense too. Relatively low crime, good old buildings, access to transit, not to far from the lake, next to both downtown and bay View, Latinos not seen as scary. Basically what is happening to Pilsen in Chicago is what will happen to Lincoln Village and Mitchell Street here in Milwaukee. Canít forget with the whole inner harbour project coming up, it just makes too much sense to tie it all together (walkers point in currently gentrifying). I donít really get those who say Cudahy or West Allis are up and coming neighborhoods. No way, millenials want nothing to do with those places. Itís too far from the city and those places are just not cool. West Allis is literally the butt of most jokes. Cudahy, most people donít event know the difference between it, st.francis, or south milwaukee. They all kinda merge into one big goop we call ďby the airportĒ. But yeah, never West Allis, and Iím not even saying that to be mean. The perception of the place will not be changed anytime soon. They can try as much as they want, it ainít happening. I know itís a safe place with nice houses and plenty of good commercial corridors, but dirty stallis and itís stallicats is something thatís ingrained into the local mythos. Itís just like parts of the north side of Milwaukee. No matter how safe it is, just being part of the north side elicits an immediate no from almost everyone in the metro area. Sucks, but what can you do? Oh and jsonline article has me more worried about the couture. Please, Mke needs the couture built.
Please explain to me how West Allis is too far from the city. When I moved back to the area, I lived on 79th near Greenfield Ave, and my commute to work north of downtown was half what it is now. And Iím in the city limits. The people I always hear refer to it as dirty stallis always seem to be younger south suburban natives who havenít been out of the area in their lifetimes. Downtown West Allis has a lot going for it, and location is one of its positives.

I have to say, I like West Allis. It's got its own feel and flavor (Kegel's Inn anyone?).

For what it's worth (I ultimately feel this whole section of comments will be moved to the 'Suburban' thread) if Mandel and the Six Points area of West Allis can really get off the ground, along with the transformation of the Farmers Market, that whole area from 62nd - 70th Streets along Greenfield and National Avenues could really stand out. What's lagging right now is the lack of solid tenants to drive up walking traffic.

Additionally, if West Allis can figure out how to transform the former Allis-Chalmers site into an actual town center versus the retail strip mall with several box anchors it currently has, that'll help push the actual "main street" downtown section along Greenfield Ave between 70th St thru State Fair Park into a lively corridor as well. I'd imagine bars, restaurants and entertainment options along with incorporating the midsize box retailers and small businesses on lower levels of buildings that would include more housing components or hotels.

I'm still quite surprised that the State Fair Park area has only seen a Hampton Inn & Suites open up in the immediate area. I feel West Allis isn't marketing to hotel developers correctly - the close proximity of the Greenfield Ave corridor to various sites (Tosa Village shopping/dining, Froedtert/Med College, Research Park and of course State Fair Park itself) along with transforming Greenfield Ave itself into a workable corridor should bring in concepts for new hotels in this hotel boom the metro is experiencing. Would also add more foot traffic along Greenfield too via the additional guests staying along the corridor.

Manitowoc is a city on hard times, this one hurts a little.

Could be faster than you think, there are some neighborhood groups and organizations that are doing good work and there have been some nice developments like the Majestic Theater and Mitchell Street Library among others. I think you'll start to see spillover even before Walker's Point is built up, developers tend to try and get ahead of the curve like they did with Walker's Point even before Third Ward was built up.

Certainly is bad for Manitowoc, but is expected.

The silver lining is that it pulls more communities into greater MKE orbit.

What Iím confused about is Manitowoc was on the verge of being a Fortune 500 company or even was at one point and in a few years, I donít even think it is in the fortune 1000. How can a company that makes cranes be doing so bad with all of the construction right now?

The company spun off its food service equipment division into a new publicly traded company in 2016 so I'd assume that might have something to do with it. It's still a Fortune 1000 company though.

The bigger blow was when they moved around 580 blue-collar jobs to Pennsylvania about a year or so ago. But I suspect a good number of the 50-ish headquarters jobs are higher paying, and having a headquarters brings travelers with hotel and restaurant business. Plus it's something of a gut punch to lose a company names for your city.

Too bad they couldnít be moving their offices to 43 instead of 41. 41 is about an hour and a half away from where they are now in Manitowoc instead of a similar location on 43 which would be an hour. That isnít a great commute, but at least doable for a while for some employees who need time to figure things out.

I would imagine many may explore moving to Sheboygan or West Bend or Cedarburg, even Brown Deer or the Falls, a few possibly even the far far northwest side of the city, where the sidewalks end and the mcmansions are huge

This is just absolutely painful to see. So many small towns in Wisconsin have seen such a drain of talent, so it's somewhat not surprising, plus I'm glad they're moving to Milwaukee if anywhere. But man... such a shame to see this happening.
