Holy crap those are amazing, Mark. The silhouette in the foreground is sumptuous.

Here's the banner version, re-sized to the required 719 x 123. Mark, if you're okay with this being submitted as a banner, then I'll submit it.

^Okay, it's been submitted. It could take a little while for it to show up, though, because Jan gets tons of banner submissions.

Awesome pics as usual MM! UCT is coming along really well, and I'm loving the pics of the city at night from breakwater. Just think if we could get LPT in that shot too. OOOOWEEE!

January 6 is too early. Ask Jan to postpone using the banner until January 31, a much more significant date for Milwaukee...it's 161st birthday.

Good news for another local company from JSonline http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=548346

Industrial packager wraps up deal for Ohio competitor.

Bentley World-Packaging Ltd., which has shown strong internal growth the last few years, completed an acquisition Tuesday that will boost its sales by 50% and take it into new markets.

The firm closed on the purchase of Overseas Packing LLC, a 70-employee export packaging company in Walton Hills, Ohio, near Cleveland.

Alternative school might get new digs - Plan would renovate north side building

Posted: Jan. 3, 2007
A former industrial building on Milwaukee's north side would be converted into the new home for an alternative school, creating a $4.5 million investment for the central city, under plans disclosed Wednesday.

The long-vacant building at 225 W. Capitol Drive is being sold by the city Redevelopment Authority to an investors group created by Philip Katz Project Development LLC and Williams Development Corp.

Today's (1/5/2007) Business Journal carries a front-page story on Icon Development's $130 million proposal to build a 20-story condo, medical office complex, with 240-room hotel and retail space on the south side of W. Burleigh St., just east of Hwy. 45 (114 St.) in Tosa. Artist's conception looks pretty interesting. Plan seems to fit with Tosa's overall development objectives for that area.

Do you by any chances have any pics of the renderings?? I heard about this today but didn't see any pictures, and I'm also not a Business Journal print subscriber.

Also today the Chicago Tribune has an article talking about the airline market there and here at Milwaukee's Mitchell Int'l, with them saying that JetBlue might begin adding service in Milwaukee this year, and questioning the success of AirTran's bid on Midwest. The article can be found here: http://www.chicagotribune.com/busine...i-business-hed

Sorry, I made a jpeg of the rendering but don't have a website to post it to (but I can e-mail it to somebody who does). The 20-story condo is shown at the northeast corner of the parcel, with a 10-story hotel to the west, bordering Burleigh. Behind that is a structure that is probably the medical arts bldg., perhaps with 1st-floor retail space. Another structure on the south border of the parcel would be used for parking and maybe more retail. The Business Journal hasn't yet posted the article to its website, but it should be ther sometime this afternoon.

That, in my opinion, is really impressive. If Wauwatosa goes through with this, they'll be creating their own "downtown" of sorts, and Milwaukee will begin to have a "downtown away from downtown", kinda like what Schaumburg/Rosemont/O'Hare is to Chicago. I'm beginning to wonder if that 20-story condo tower will be higher than the US Bank and Bank Mutual Towers at Mayfair. I don't know their heights, but either way this development, along with the 8-story Crowne Plaza Hotel will add more skyline to that area if you're on Mayfair Rd. and Bluemound Rd, on top of that hill overlooking the area.
