Here's an update from UrbanMilwaukee.com, this project is finally going to start construction in just a few weeks after all of these years of delays:

Quote:
The Couture is Finally Happening

A 44-story apartment tower planned for a prime site along the lakefront is finally happening. Milwaukee County is expected to close on the sale of the Downtown Transit Center to Barrett-Lo Visionary Development at the end of the month to clear the way for The Couture.

To accommodate the sale, the Milwaukee County Transit System is re-configuring a number of bus routes that currently terminate at the center. The Milwaukee County Historical Society has also been on site this week removing a transit history exhibit on the building’s second floor. Demolition of the building itself will begin in the coming weeks.

Fences are up around the entrances of the old transit center and the utility companies were out marking the pavement yesterday. Demolition should be underway shortly.

Here is an updated rendering of this project released today with an associated article from the Milwaukee Business Times.

Barrett Lo releases updated rendering of The Couture

With initial demolition work underway at Downtown Transit Center to make way for The Couture development, Barrett Lo Visionary Development unveiled a new rendering of the project by Rinka Chung Architecture.

The $122 million, 44-story luxury apartment building will take 32 months to complete once construction begins in 2017.

Its nice to see Milwaukee finally come close to receiving a skyline more befitting of its status. This tower and the NWM tower are very classy.

Some news about this project that just appeared in the local media today...

Quote:
Second Lakefront Tower Coming?

The Couture, the proposed $122 million, 44-story lakefront apartment tower, is being designed to have an attached, neighboring tower. Barrett-Lo Visionary Development, the firm developing The Couture at 808 E. Michigan St., is designing the apartment tower and its mixed-use base in a way that will allow for a second tower on the site. Design documents recently filed with the city detail the first tower’s ellipse-shaped footprint on the northeast corner of the site and show an area at the southwest corner of the site that leaves space for the foundation of a second tower.

Sources confirm that Barrett-Lo is actively planning the second tower in partnership with tower architect Rinka Chung Architecture. What remains unclear is the second tower’s use and height.

Note that this thread is in the "world development" section. This way people from around the world who don't check on our local sub forum can see some of the major projects happening in our fine city. Get the word out, Milwaukee is undergoing a transformation that is unprecedented in recent times.

Signage up, groundbreaking still set for fall after the pipes have been moved. Advertising going in just in time for Summerfest!
