Episode 004 – Developer Tim Gokhman
Real estate developer joins the show to talk food halls, mass timber and more.
This week on City Beat, the weekly podcast from Urban Milwaukee, host Jeramey Jannene interviews developer Tim Gokhman about the new Crossroads Collective food hall on N. Farwell Ave. Gokhman also discusses the firm’s planned mass timber buildings for downtown and a large apartment project that’s just getting underway in Bay View.
Jannene also discusses the opening of Uncle Wolfie’s Breakfast Tavern and the closing of Mykonos Gyro & Cafe.
And what’s the deal with Michels Corp. not taking a subsidy offered by the city for the firm’s $100 million development?
We end the show with a Pedestrian Observation, a quick look at an urban planning idea that can help build a better city. This week we explore the need to embrace the adaptive reuse of historic buildings to ensure they’re around for future generations. Should a historic theater at Soldiers Home be required to stay a theater or are there other ways to redevelop the structure so its available for future generations? How can unique, but economically-challenged buildings be saved from the wrecking ball? As the redevelopment of a number of warehouses and factories in the Historic Third Ward shows us, it’s through adaptive reuse.
