As far as I know I believe they approved the Pabst Brewery area for a TIF, and the project now consists of some resturaunts, corporate training facilities, and I thought either condos or apartments. If I'm missing anything please correct me!!!

Two developers criticize city handling of Downer project
City officials chose New Land for larger east side development

Two Milwaukee developers are questioning a Milwaukee Redevelopment Authority decision to reject proposals to build a hotel and condominiums on a city-owned parking lot at the corner of North Downer Avenue and East Belleview Place.

After a year-long review of eight plans submitted to the city to develop the parking lot, the Redevelopment Authority decided in late 2006 to sell the one-third acre parcel to New Land Enterprises, Milwaukee, so that it could be incorporated into a proposed $65 million redevelopment plan for several parcels along Downer Avenue.

Many neighbors oppose New Land's proposal for an 11-story condo tower, 50,000 square feet of medical office space, 200 parking spaces and renovation of two buildings along a two-block area.

John Ogden Jr. and Harry Van Oudenallen were two of eight developers who submitted proposals in early 2006 to acquire the 17,000-square-foot parking lot at Belleview and Downer. Ogden and Van Oudenallen claim the city's review process and subsequent decision to allow New Land to purchase the land did not treat all proposals equally.

"It was not a very fair review process," said Ogden, president of Ogden Development Group, Milwaukee.

Ogden proposed a boutique hotel on the lot that would cater to people visiting the nearby University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee campus and Columbia St.Mary's Hospital.

Joel Brennan, executive director of the Milwaukee Redevelopment Authority, defended his agency's decision to sell the parking lot to New Land because the parcel will allow the firm to leverage investment funds that will be used for a larger development plan along Downer.

The city was obligated to work with New Land because its project had a greater development impact on the neighborhood, Brennan said.

Ogden Development proposed an $8.5 million project that included a 45-room boutique hotel, 10,000 square feet of retail space and 50 parking spaces. Even though Ogden Development's plan was one of two finalists along with New Land, city planners never notified Ogden why its proposal was deemed undesirable.

"It was a simple matter of going with a $5 million to $8 million development or a $65 million development," Brennan said.

TIF issue
The other finalist was New Land, which had proposed a $3.6 million apartment building with 6,500 square feet of retail and 43 parking spaces. Brennan said Ogden's proposal was shelved because it required a $2 million tax incremental financing district.

In spring 2006, the Redevelopment Authority decided not to award the land to New Land or Ogden Development. In the meantime, New Land had acquired two retail and office properties along Downer Avenue from Katz Property Management for $12 million.
New Land eventually proposed a larger redevelopment that included a 74-unit condo building, at the northeast corner of Webster Place and Stowell Avenue one block west of Downer, and redeveloping properties on Downer.

The process leaves Van Oudenallen disillusioned about doing business with the city. Van Oudenallen, a principal at Arquitectura Inc., Milwaukee, proposed a $5.8 million project that included 22 condominiums, 4,200 square feet of retail space and 62 parking spaces.

Arquitectura invested time and money in the process and didn't get an honest review, said Van Oudenallen. If the city wasn't set on following through on the RFP, it should have notified participants there were no guarantees a winner would be named, he said.

"From now on, we're going to stay away from city of Milwaukee requests for proposal," Van Oudenallen said.

Brennan said the Redevelopment Authority followed guidelines set up by state legislators regulating community development authorities and made the right decision. Land that is controlled by the Milwaukee Redevelopment Authority is exempted from the public bidding process to give the city more flexibility in promoting development, Brennan said.

Convention attendance to decline in 2007

Number of room nights could increase with smaller conventions
anyone with a subscription to the milwaukee bizjournal ? that coul post the rest of the article?????????/
Lacking a major, high-profile event such as the National Rifle Association of America's annual meeting, convention attendance in Milwaukee is expected to decline in 2007.

However, the number of hotel room nights used in downtown Milwaukee is expected to be flat, or perhaps increase slightly this year, due to a number of smaller conventions that will lead to stays of a night or more by attendees, according to Visit Milwaukee, the city's convention and visitors bureau.

Specific plans for each building/block within the Pabst complex will be rolled out over an extended period of time. The overall goal is to convert the brewery into a cohesive mixed-use neighborhood made up of historic rehabilitation and new construction.

Although Zilber owns the complex now, he is considering opening up the redevelopment process to other interested developers as well. The Gorman Company has expressed interest in converting some of the older buildings into residential uses, much like several other conversions they've done around town. There are also still plans to open a brewpub and brewing museum in the old Pabst offices/welcome center. There is also a possibility of Johnson Controls opening an employment training center and hotel in another part of the brewery.

The Common Council recently approved a tax increment financing plan which will be used to help pay for some demolition work, environmental remediation, new streets, sidewalks, sewers, and so forth to prepare the site for redevelopment. Some of that work will begin this month--there is a dedication ceremony tomorrow.

Here is the project website: The Brewery.

Editorial: Embracing the Windy City
From the Journal Sentinel
Posted: Jan. 14, 2007
It's not one market - yet - but Milwaukee and Chicago are growing closer by the day, and leaders in southeastern Wisconsin would do well to make the most of it.

Milwaukee & Chicago

Buy a link hereThat includes shoring up the region's transportation network and taking other steps to encourage cooperation.

The area stretching from Milwaukee's northern suburbs through Chicago is an emerging mega-city, the home to more than 11 million people, 36 Fortune 500 companies and 10 major universities or colleges. This is no small matter. Heft and scale are powerful attractions to both business and talent in the global economy. A combined Chicago and Milwaukee ranks among the nation's leaders in key job markets, including legal services, computer systems design, accounting and professional and technical services.

William Testa, the respected economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, noted in his blog recently that "an absence of organized efforts" at promoting increased business up and down the corridor is puzzling.

"Perhaps a little détente along the Illinois-Wisconsin border might be advantageous to all," he wrote.

In fact, it's happening.

As the Journal Sentinel's Tom Daykin noted recently, Chicago-area residents are moving to Wisconsin, especially to Kenosha County, where the population is expected to grow almost another 5% by 2011 and median income is expected to rise nearly 11%.

At the same time, Chicago-area businesses are expanding northward, including hospital equipment maker Hospira Inc. and, we hope, pharmaceutical giant Abbott Labs, which has purchased land near Pleasant Prairie for expansion.

There is the increased traffic coming from Illinois to Mitchell International Airport, already the third Chicago airport for many folks in northern Illinois trying to avoid lines and delays at O'Hare and Midway. Commuting between the two cities is still small but growing rapidly. Ridership on the Hiawatha, the Amtrak service between the two cities hit an all-time record at midyear. Other signs: Marquette University gets a significant influx of students from northern Illinois, and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin gets a significant number of patients from south of the state line.

Wisconsin is a partner in Chicago's bid to host the 2016 summer Olympics, something that likely would drive further development up and down the I-94 corridor.

The question becomes: How can leaders on both sides of that divide best take advantage?

First, change the mind-set. Root for the Packers? A no-brainer. Hate the Bears. A given. But beyond that, it's time to embrace the market heft of Chicagoland, especially when selling Milwaukee to the world. For all its charm, Milwaukee isn't a household name in every corner of the nation, let alone overseas.

There are tangible necessities, too, especially a renewed push for the Kenosha-Racine-Milwaukee commuter rail line.

No single project is more important to development along the Milwaukee-to-Chicago rail corridor. The line, which would run through lakefront communities on existing freight lines, would allow passengers to connect to Chicago's Metra service in Kenosha. It would cost

$200 million to build and

$11 million to operate annually. It's clear KRM is a good investment that would not only move workers along the corridor but lead to expansive development near the stations. It would also make the region more attractive for two-income power couples whose choice of workplace would multiply exponentially. The commuter rail line is a must-have for the Milwaukee area.

Chicago and Milwaukee should find other ways to work cooperatively - perhaps by seeking joint federal funding for transportation projects or on preservation and sustainable use of Great Lakes water.

Clearly, the top priority needs to be on learning to play together in southeastern Wisconsin. But taking advantage of the size and scale of Chicago should be on any list of to-do items.

As Paul O'Connor, executive director of the group World Business Chicago, put it:

"There no question about it: Milwaukee and Chicago are just a picket fence from being together."

STADIUM

I was just thinking about the bucks and the bradley center and i found out about Louisville, which is getting a new 22,000 seat arena mainly for the universsity of louisville basketball team, The stadium will most likely be built with connected hotel, restaurants and a museum, It seems like the costs have been split up a lot. The city is using a TIF tho worth around $250 million. They are also getting a grant from the state worth $75 million....
This stadium woul likely draw national events like a round of the NCAA tournement......


http://www.arenaauthority.com/


ANYONE WITH more info on that stadium feel free to post it........

-------------------------------------------------


Does anyone think Milwaukee would be able to pull off a new stadium like this???? maybe even on a little smaller scale?????????
I think a new stadium agreement woould retain the bucks after their current contract expires and would be a great asset in attracting national sporting events and maaybe an NBA allstar game....... other opinions????????????????

I think the land the Bradley Center with a parking structure is on could always be rearranged, and a larger arena could be placed down, if it was done right. I just don't want to see Milwaukee with all these arenas and large stadiums for no reason.

And I made sure that I had a piece of the shareholders voting process and bought some Midwest stock. Anybody that has the money and lives in Milwaukee should invest in their home companies.

I was thinking it would be nice to have a high rise in the pabst brewery(20 or 30 stories) right on the edge of I-43. Like when you are driving through Chicago on the I-94 and you look to the east and see all those building there. Even though they are not on the edge they are still tall enough to look like they are.

Developers buy building at Pabst site
Two Milwaukee development firms that have renovated older downtown properties have agreed to buy a building at the former Pabst brewery site, and plan to remodel it into office space.

TMB Development Co., led by Charles Trainer, and Dermond Property Investments LLC, led by Max Dermond, are buying the 55,000-square-foot former broiler house, which is just west of N. 10th St., and one block north of W. Juneau Ave.

Dermond and Trainer said they plan to complete their purchase by September. Remodeling work will begin by the end of this year on the three-story building, which will also have street-level retail space, they said today.

Demond and Trainer have already spoken with prospective tenants, including local architectural firms. Dermond said the next step is to select an architectural firm to work on the project.

The announcement came at the formal groundbreaking for The Brewery, the new name for the redeveloped Pabst site.

Real estate investor Joseph Zilber, who bought the Pabst property in August, has conceptual plans to create housing, offices, a hotel and other uses. The brewery has been largely vacant since Pabst closed the facility in 1996.

Zilber intends to sell large portions of the Pabst site to various developers.

So far, the only other announced purchase agreement is with Madison-based Gorman & Co., which wants to create 92 to 100 loft-style apartments within the former Pabst keg house. That building overlooks W. McKinley Blvd., and is just across 10th St. from the former broiler house.

Other possible uses at the former brewery include an international corporate training site operated by Johnson Controls Inc. and a brew pub developed by local investor Jim Haertel and his partners, who own the former Pabst offices and visitors center.

Zilber said negotiations are continuing with Johnson Controls on that company's possible development, which could include a hotel.

The Common Council in December approved a $29 million financing plan to help redevelop the Pabst complex. The funds will help pay for demolition, environmental cleanup and construction of new streets, sewers and other public improvements.

Property taxes from the $205 million development will pay off the city's debt, plus an estimated $12.5 million in interest charges, over 21 years, according to the city's comptroller's office.

The Pabst redevelopment will be done in phases, and likely take over five years to complete. Some of the buildings will be razed, while others with historic value will be preserved.

City prods county about Park East delays

Published January 15, 2007 - BizTimes Daily

Previous Page Previous | 2 of 7 | Next Next Page

Richard "Rocky" Marcoux, commissioner of the Milwaukee Department of City Development, recently sent a letter to Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker and County Board Chairman Lee Holloway, expressing "concern" about the lack of progress in attracting development to county-owned properties in the Park East Freeway corridor in downtown Milwaukee.
"I am eager to see visible construction activity on the vacant property that has been sold or optioned by Milwaukee County," Marcoux stated in the letter.
City officials are moving other projects in corridor area forward, Marcoux said in his letter. The city-prompted projects include: tax incremental financing (TIF) for the redevelopment of the former Pabst brewery property located on the west end of the corridor, by Joseph Zilber; the redevelopment of the former Pfister & Vogel tannery at the east end of the Park East corridor by Mandel Group; TIF funding and construction of the new Manpower Inc. headquarters; and the construction of The Flatiron, a five-story building with 38 condominiums on a 10,000-square-foot lot formerly owned by the city at 1541 N. Jefferson St., by Deerfield, Ill.-based Legacy Real Estate Development LLC.
However, most of the land where the Park East Freeway once stood is owned by Milwaukee County. The county has been selling its property piece by piece.
So far, no development has begun on any of the county-owned properties.
The County Board adopted the Park East Redevelopment Compact (PERC) for reviewing developments on the county-owned land in the Park East corridor. The PERC requires developers to pay union-scale wages for construction projects on the county land. In addition, the PERC indicates that developers that hire local employees, provide job training or create green space would by more likely to be selected. However, developers criticized the PERC, saying it would discourage development. The Milwaukee Common Council rejected a proposal similar to the PERC.
"I am concerned that the multi-layered process established by Milwaukee County to sell property and approve projects is contributing to delays in development," Marcoux stated in his letter. "The procedural complexities that delay project approval appear to impede closure of the land sale and achievement of our shared development goals for this property."
Marcoux also expressed concern that developers of the county-owned land will be seeking tax incremental financing (TIF) assistance from the city.
"By spending nearly $20 million in design, demolition and infrastructure improvements, the City of Milwaukee effectively absorbed the risks involved in making county-owned land marketable. Now it is time for Milwaukee County to step up as a true partner in this effort by streamlining land sales and development approvals and using flexible land pricing if necessary to realize the potential of this property," Marcoux said.
Walker was not available for comment on Marcoux's letter. Harold Mester, spokesman for the county board, said this morning that the board chairman had not yet received the letter and could not comment on it.

New Berlin firm to move to valley
A New Berlin manufacturer plans to move to a larger facility that will be developed in Milwaukee's reviving Menomonee Valley, it was announced today.

Taylor Dynamometer Inc. plans to triple the size of its current facility by constructing a $4 million plant on 3.3 acres in the city-owned Menomonee Valley Industrial Center, Mayor Tom Barrett said.

The city Redevelopment Authority will consider the proposed land sale, at $120,000 per acre, at its Thursday meeting. Taylor Dynamometer plans to begin construction of its 43,350-square-foot facility this spring if the land sale is approved by the authority and the Common Council.

Taylor Dynamometer makes engine dynamometers, which test engines for power and torque. The company has 31 full-time employees and three part-time employees. The planned expansion in the Menomonee Valley would eventually create 10 to 15 new jobs.




suburbs helping out the city????????????????????????.....


Brookfield to help fund AT&T lawsuit
Brookfield will join a consortium of suburbs that will help Milwaukee sue AT&T to provide a cable franchise agreement for its Internet protocol video service.

Brookfield aldermen voted unanimously Tuesday night to help fund the legal costs to have the Regional Telecommunications Commission intervene in a federal lawsuit the City of Milwaukee filed last month against AT&T. The RTC comprises 32 municipalities from southeastern Wisconsin.

The cost to Brookfield will be $616.78 for the first $15,000 in attorney fees projected in the litigation, according to City Attorney Karen Flaherty. Any costs exceeding $15,000 will be divided among RTC members based on the number of cable subscribers per community.

Milwaukee and the suburbs are demanding that AT&T make annual payments to municipalities for its new service, a 200-plus-channel service dubbed "U-Verse." Time Warner Cable makes such payments under its longstanding franchise agreements.

But AT&T argues that its new system does not meet the definition of cable television. The company has agreed to pay the municipalities the same revenue offered by Time Warner; however, it will not enter into a franchise agreement.

Critics say they are concerned AT&T will redline communities because the company has refused to guarantee full system build-out. The company denies that, pointing to a significant initial three-year construction plan.

An article about important community developments in regards to employment.

Grant will allow MATC to train 1,600
Workers would be recruited for manufacturing jobs
By ERICA PEREZ
[email protected]
Posted: Jan. 16, 2007

A three-year, $2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor will allow the Milwaukee Area Technical College to recruit and train 1,600 workers in five areas of advanced manufacturing where local businesses are projected to have critical shortages.

The money also will help MATC build a more strategic career-planning system, said Duane Schultz, associate dean in the division of technology and applied sciences for MATC. The goal: to anticipate earlier what jobs will be available locally and train students in those areas.

MATC surveyed about 30 local companies, including Master Lock, General Automotive Manufacturing and Rockwell Automation. In all, they said they would have roughly 1,745 openings in the next three years for computer numeric control machinists, welders and fabricators, maintenance technicians, quality inspectors and production manufacturing technicians.

Average entry-level wages for these jobs range from $11 to $15 an hour.

"We targeted our (program) around manufacturing because it's such a strong part of the southeast Wisconsin job base," said John Stilp, vice president of MATC's Mequon campus.

"It's the one we'd like to grow because as you grow manufacturing jobs, that spawns other activities that lead to banking, insurance and health care," Stilp said.

The grant is one of 72 awarded to community colleges nationally, totaling $125 million.

MATC plans to recruit and train people at three different skill levels through the program, called Bridges to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Manufacturing Careers.

Workers who need advanced training can earn a nationally recognized credential in manufacturing skills.

Someone who wants to become a welder but doesn't have the skills to pass the entrance test to the welding program can get the necessary training in math and reading comprehension.

The third part will focus on career planning for students in high school. MATC hopes to recruit 240 students from Bradley Tech, South Division and Custer high schools and the Milwaukee Career Center, a program of the Milwaukee County Private Industry Council.

The idea is that students could get a more realistic picture of what jobs might be open and then get training in those areas.


Potential Future Job Openings

Rockwell Automation: 100 technicians
P&H Mining Equipment: 196 machinists, production welders, assembly and maintenance workers
HB Performance Systems: 20 machinists; six maintenance mechanics
Manpower: 94 machinists, welding, production and maintenance workers

Construction begins today for downtown hotel

A groundbreaking ceremony will be held today at 1 p.m. to celebrate the start of construction for a $20 million, 14-story hotel and condominium building at the southeast corner of North Water Street and Juneau Avenue in downtown Milwaukee.

The developer for the project is Fort Myers, Fla.-based Development Opportunity Corp. The downtown Milwaukee building will have a 128-room Staybridge Suites hotel, 31 residential condominiums, 14,000 square feet of first floor retail space and two levels of indoor parking.

The hotel will offer extended stay suites, which will include full kitchen and dining areas, a fitness center, an outdoor patio and grill area and a full breakfast menu.

The condominiums, called The Residences on Water, will range from 800 to 2,600 square feet. For the condos, the building will feature a private elevator lobby, valet parking and complete access to the hotel concierge, fitness center, daily breakfast service and a weekly cocktail reception.
The building will feature several environmentally friendly "green building" features, including a green roof where people will be able to view the downtown area.

Approximately a dozen hotel developments have been proposed recently for sites in and around downtown Milwaukee. Of those, the Staybridge Suites will be the first project to begin construction.

Park Lafayette finally got around to pouring the foundation... we can move it to "under construction" status on Emporis. I'll take some pictures as soon as the clouds roll away.

Any requests for construction update photos?

On my list:
