    Hey Jeramey, just a minor point. Gensler’s architectural firm is headquartered in San Francisco not Chicago.

    Glad to see that the Live Block is finally moving forward. Hopefully the tenants are announced soon!

    It’s exciting to see everything go up so quickly!

    In addition, I’d love to see the Milwaukee Turner’s find a way to activate the surface parking lots on either side of Turner Hall. In addition to more indoor space, how about a biergarten that “turns” into a wintergarten from November – March? (Or maybe May…)

    (Separate note: We’re just under three weeks away from the Milwaukee Public Museum announcing the location for its proposed new building. They’ve teased the heck our of doing it west of the river–after talking a couple months ago about wanting to be part of a lakefront museum district. I’m suspect it will be a particular site very close to the Live Block and Turner Hall.) 🙂

    This is all about revenue capture. The Packers are doing a similar thing with their “Titletown District”. Somehow these teams don’t make enough money on media contracts, ticket/concession, and merchandise sales. In addition, they must create “destinations” so as to soak up more money that should be going to the local economy. It’s disgusting and this place will be, with “at least 25 percent of the tenants” being local, 75 percent soulless.

    I have an idea for the name: Corporate Anyplace, USA Live!
