Construction site work on Freshwater Plaza, the mixed use development project that Wauwatosa-based Wangard Partners plans to build northeast of South First Street and Greenfield Avenue in Milwaukee’s Walker’s Point neighborhood, could begin this fall. “The site work that could begin in upcoming months includes environmental remediation and utility work”, said Mark Lake, Director of Retail Development for Wangard. “We’re still holding out hope we can break ground this fall,” said Joe Kleiman, a broker for Mid-America Real Estate, which recently began marketing the retail space in the project. “The project could open in late summer or early fall 2015”, Lake said. “Wangard still needs to complete the entitlement process and obtain financing for the project”, he said. “We’re looking at all financing sources right now,” Lake said. The project will include a 42,000-square-foot Cermak Fresh Market grocery store, a 45,750-square-foot office building, an L-shaped building at the corner of First and Greenfield with 15,900 square feet of retail space on the first floor, 19,000 square feet of medical office space on the second floor and 66 apartments on the upper three floors, plus two small outlot retail buildings on First Street with a total of 6,600 square feet of retail space View the full article as seen on
