Hometown Gas Station Demolished

By - Sep 30th, 2008 07:14 pm

The Hometown Gas Station on North Avenue has been almost completely demolished. The site is one of the proposed locations for the new UW-Milwaukee dorm. Owned by the Mandel Group, the site hasn’t functioned as a gas station for years. There was recently a public hearing on Mandel’s proposal for the site.

I’m not going to speculate on whether this means Mandel knows something we don’t in regards to winning the Request-For-Proposal from the UWM Real Estate Foundation, but they appear to be going ahead as such at the moment.
