Villard Square Grandfamily housing & MPLS

The NWSCDC, in conjunction with Gorman Company, co-developed a tax-credit financed, mixed-use public library building that incorporates a mixed-income, “grandfamily” apartment project on the corner of Villard Avenue and 35th Street in Milwaukee. With a sustainable and streamlined library model, the Milwaukee Public Library has significantly reduced its operating costs at this facility.

Century City II

Century City II

Century City II

Over the past several years, the City of Milwaukee and its partners have created momentum through their collaborative economic development efforts in Century City I.  Several catalytic developments have been underway in the Century City Business Park on the former Tower Automotive site.  The NWSCDC is seeking to complement these successes and strengthen the 30th Street Industrial Corridor business climate by focusing on Century City II.

The NWSCDC is focusing its efforts in a nearly 30 acre area known as “Century City II,” generally bounded by Hope Avenue on the north, North 27th Street on the east, West Capitol Drive on the south, and the railroad corridor on the west.  The creation of a business accelerator, the construction of a new science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) school, the development of land for office and manufacturing uses, and the establishment of high-quality residential living in the Century City II area will foster the expansion of local private enterprise.  These economic development projects will house, educate, nurture, and inspire citizens in a key geography of Milwaukee.
