Milwaukee's "Pabst City" development got some good play in the Wall Street Journal last week.
Chicago-based reporter Maura Webber Sadovi wrote a piece noting, "The project is one of the latest efforts aimed at revitalizing Milwaukee, which anchors a region that has battled anemic job and population growth as its manufacturing sector has shrunk."
The article provides a brief description of the former Pabst property as well as an overview of Joseph Zilber, the primary developer of The Brewery. The story states that Zilber "is pursuing the project as a way of establishing his legacy and giving back to the city."
Sadovi also highlighted the asking price, $5.8 million, for the old "Laverne and Shirley" bottling building. Any takers?
Further describing the changes that are taking place in Milwaukee, the article titled "Brewery Site Becomes Redevelopment Linchpin," also mentions the development of adjacent neighborhood in the Park East corridor along with the recent opening of the Manpower headquarters and the construction of the addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum.
