The Bay View site of the former Sweet Water Organics is being looked at for a possible $40 million, 307-unit apartment complex, according to Alderman Tony Zielinski.

A community meeting on the proposed project hosted by Alderman Zielinski will be held on Monday, March 16 at 6 p.m. at the South Shore Park pavilion, 2900 S. Shore Dr.

“This is a significant development proposal for Bay View, where excellent projects of all sizes are regularly coming forward and at a pace that is moving Bay View forward at breakneck speed,” Alderman Zielinski said.

The project would require a zoning change, and the development would encompass two parcels of land, 2151 S. Robinson Ave. and 2181 S. Robinson Ave.

Steve Lindner, the owner of the property, said Alderman Zielinski has been a helpful resource with the proposal. “I really appreciate Alderman Zielinski’s commitment to helping me find a good, productive use of the property,” Mr. Lindner said.

“Alderman Zielinski’s been in my corner from the start and it has really made a positive difference,” he said.

    Interesting project! It’s really too bad that Sweet Water didn’t pan out, but this might be a good use of the space. Looking forward to more info on this.

  2. Dave Reid says:

    @TF We should point out this rendering is, apparently, just a sample project the development firm has built in another city, not what they are proposing in Milwaukee. More details soon.

  3. The Rev says:

    Don’t trust anything Zielinski pushes forward. He has no sense of righteouseness.

  4. Tom etten says:

    I’m a bit concerned about the internal grid of private streets. Is this a form of gated community? Why not join the Bay View community instead of being insulated from it?
