The Bookends, proposed by New Land Enterprises, will go before the Milwaukee City Plan Commission on October 19th, 2009 to gain approval of a change in zoning to a detailed plan development. The project, which would be located at E. Kilbourn Avenue and N. Van Buren Street, consists of a 19-story mixed used apartment building with up to 224 dwelling units, a retail component, and five stories of structured parking. According to the Journal Sentinel, New Land Enterprises is also requesting that the city provide a loan guarantee
, which would allow New Land Enterprises to move forward with the project, potentially breaking ground in the near future.
If approved, the development will go before the Zoning, Neighborhoods & Development Committee, and then onto the full Common Council. The full detailed plan is available on City Plan Commission website, and the associated file, 081081, is now available in legistar.
