Jefferson St. Garage Receives Long Overdue Face-lift

By - Jan 12th, 2008 06:22 am

p1060030_200.jpgInland Companies has begun redevelopment of the mixed-use building located at 770 N. Jefferson St.

The project will update the building’s facade allowing for better street access to the building and an will have an updated look to better support first floor retail. This update has long been needed because despite this building being located one of Milwaukee’s most vibrant streets it has been a difficult location for retail business to succeed. For example, in recent years Fresche Pizza, Howl at the Moon, and Senor Frog’s have all opened and then shortly there after closed their doors partly due to the lack of street level visibility. This redevelopment although small in size could activate the eastern side of Jefferson St. and continue the growth in downtown.

More photos of this redevelopment can be found in the Photo Gallery.

    Glad to see something is being done with that hideous thing.

    Yea it really is about time. The new facade looks better though I’m not 100% certain it will be amazingly better… So I guess we’ll find out.
