Pizza Man In Progress
They're tearing up the space to cook up a quite different Pizza Man, as our photos show.
In January 2010 Milwaukeeans watched as Pizza Man burn to the ground. The fire shuttered the Milwaukee landmark and displaced multiple businesses and residents. It seemed at the time to mark the end of Pizza Man.
But earlier this year we learned that Pizza Man had found a new home and would soon be re-opening the restaurant at 2597 N. Downer Ave, the former Jake’s Big Dog (and Lixx) location. The designs for the new restaurant, by Rinka Chung Architecture, were quickly approved by the City of Milwaukee, and it is under construction today. Below we present a few shots of the restaurant under construction, including the view from what will become a second-floor terrace.
To see renderings of what the building will look like when it’s complete see our story, “Pizza Man Coming to Downer Ave.”
