Germania Building downtown sold
Downtown Milwaukee's historic Germania Building has been sold for just over $4 million to a local investors group.

Germania Group LLC, led by Santino "Sonny" Bando, bought the eight-story, 90,000-square-foot building from an investment trust based in suburban Chicago, Bando said today.

The Germania Building, 135 W. Wells St., was built in 1896 by George Brumder to house his Germania Publishing Co., which was then the largest publisher of German-language newspapers in the United States



also.....
I was wondering what people thought about Nan Hegerty's retirement. Personally I think shes jus retiring because of the problems she couldnt solve. murders, and violent crimes were up last year........

Frankly, I don't think it would have mattered who was Milwaukee's police chief. The murders and violent crimes still would have increased in numbers. There are two officers stationed daily at Bradley Tech High School, and a big fight broke out there today regardless.

Good point, but I think this city needs to move a little deeper as to who's to blame for these increases. Milwaukee needs to find some way to get a better educational system in place, to try harder to keep kids in school and thinking of better things in life. No one in the media ever mentions the school system as a possible reason for these increases....just police failing to do its job. Crime is a battle that needs to be fought on multiple subjects.

MPS/MPD

Well part of the problem with MPS is that more of Milwaukee's money goes to the suburbs as part of shared revenues than is returned and apparently this is a fight that despite the city wants changed doesn't have much support outside of Milwaukee. Clearly money isn't the only issue but it sure doesn't help.

It police related legislation soon a bill will be floated in Madison to eliminate police pay in Milwaukee for officers convicted of a felony. So we can stop paying crooked cops... This state law currently only applies to Milwaukee!

I've got a friend who works in the development industry (and I won't go farther than that) that passed this along to me... thought you'd be interested in seeing it.

It's a rendering of the StayBridge Hotel going in at the southeast corner of Water and Juneau. Groundbreaking is scheduled for Thursday, January 18. Enjoy!

Man o man that is a nice looking building.

When this thing is done, it will be such a great "I told you so" to those who were dead set against tearing down the Park East. It has taken some years to get these projects moving, but the end result will show that tearing down that old freeway spur was one of the best things this city ever did.

Staybridge

This building will be at the corner of Water and Juneau right next to Bar Louie... I believe it was three small parking lots and an alley way vacation that makes up the lot it will be on..

I think everyone here will appreciate this. Check out Eppstein Uhen Architect's new web site http://www.eua.com (largest firm in Milwaukee). Navigate the Portfolio to find some new projects and some renderings never seen before by the public. Pay special attention to the Corporate/Industrial - Developer portion of the portfolio...

I'm extremely impressed with EUA's future design plans for the city. These buildings are quality buildings and I don't think the city will ever look the same once they're built.

Ovation Plaza


Renassiance ClubSport in Third Ward


This is the building I love the most!!
Block 6 & 12 (I don't know what that means...but it looks like its a block before the North End on Water St.)

"Blocks 6 & 12" refers to the numbered blocks as designated by the City's Park East Redevelopment Plan.

Those buildings are sweet and the tallest greenish building really needs to be built, along with the Ruvin project the park east looks to have some decent height.
