the bowling alley would actually be on the second or third floor, with an entrance at street level. but don't worry, there will be plenty of activity at street level as well. all of the restaurants and entertainment venues spill out into that small courtyard and onto Wisconsin.

Excellent. I like that little presentation a lot. At this point, any news is good news, as I still have this fear that the project fails and we get something like that 6 story hotel from the Development thread.

No, they needed it to support their entertainment options. It is currently and will continue to be used for parking for the Boston Store corporate offices next door during the week. In the evenings and weekend it will be available for people visiting the development.

I know it is being used by them and boston store in the future.. just wondering if they were rebuilding it. The plans seem to show a rebuilt parking structure.

The plan on the website just remodels the existing deck, putting some retail on the first floor, making a direct connection to the new building and adding some elevators. No one would rebuild that deck and keep that weird configuration with the giant donut hole in the middle.

I have drove past there on many occasions and do not see any construction or ads for the building like I do when I drive past the site for the moderne. Does anyone know when he plans to begin construction?

After he has tenants signed on, and construction loans acquired, and final approvals from the City.

IOW, there's some work to do. And, if the downtown condo slowdown continues, Ghazi will be hard pressed to build much beyond 20-22 stories unless people are willing to shell out big bucks not to have much of a water view. Hope I'm wrong, but that location seems like a tougher sell for high-end condos.

they will be doing a mix of condos and apartments depending on the strength of the market. so hopefully the weak housing market won't delay things too much, but you are right it will certainly have an effect.

The Blatz doesnt have a water view either, and that's almost sold out... So who knows?

The blatz isn't exactly the most high end of condos though.

ghazi, however, isn't going to do a lot of high end condos either, save for the top floors.

Lets hope this project gets started soon. Downtown Milwaukee is CHANGING.

It is these little projects at first that eventually, a few years from now, will lead to us landing something major.
