Colectivo and Lowlands announce first Waukesha County locations

A new Colectivo cafe and a new grand cafe concept similar to Cafe Benelux restaurant – the first by each of the locally owned dining groups in Waukesha County – will open in The Marcus Corporation's open-air mall called The Corners of Brookfield, located east of Barker Road near the intersection of I-94 and Bluemound Road.

The 460,000 square-foot, open air mixed use development – think Bayshore – will boast the state's first Von Maur department store as its anchor. The shop will cover 140,000 square feet of the development, which is expected to open by fall 2015.

"We are very excited to be a part of such an amazing project," Mike Eitel of the Lowlands Group told me today, via email. Eitel said that despite reports that the restaurant will be a Cafe Benelux, the group had not yet decided on the name and theme of the new restaurant.

Other tenants announced today include Ohio-based Arhaus Furniture; BRIO Tuscan Grille – owned by the same group that runs Bravo! Cucina, which closed this summer at Bayshore and was replaced by Sprecher Restaurant & Pub; Chico's, Hot Mama and White House Black Market women's clothing stores; CRAVE Restaurant, based in Minneapolis;  Grimaldi's Pizza, an outpost of the legendary New York pizzeria; and Lake Geneva-based Kilwins handmade chocolates, fudge and ice cream.

More tenants are expected to be announced to arrive soon.

The Corners will also include 150 luxury apartments with concierge services and a health and fitness center.

The Corners is being realized thanks to a development agreement that includes tax incremental financing between the Town of Brookfield and The Marcus Corporation.
