For a quite sometime it appeared this project may not ever get built as no progress had been taken place on the site but finally progress can been seen at the site as work has begun on the foundation. This is great news as The Edge includes one of the missing Riverwalk pieces needed to complete the Beerline section and will include the cleanup of a contaminated property. Additionally this project has a creative design and once completed will have 133 units running in the range of $200,000 to $300,000. To follow this development I’ve started a flickr set, The Edge that I will update with new pictures to keep track of the progress.

The Mandel Group’s North End development is easily the most exciting project under development in Milwaukee. The first phase alone will include 109 condos, 88 apartments and 25,000 square feet of retail space. Work has begun on the demolition of the Pfister & Vogel tannery in preparation for construction. The water tower was removed from the roof as it is being saved and will eventually be located near Water and Pleasant. To follow this development I’ve started a flickr set, The North End that I will update with new pictures to keep track of the progress.

The controversial Downer Ave area development that includes an 11-story high rise hotel/condo building and a parking garage on Downer Ave has finally broken ground. The neighborhood was polarized on this issue and certain residents were outraged to say the least but overall this is a good development for the area. The added foot traffic that the new medical offices, hotel guests and condo residents will bring should bring needed vitality back to the street. Further the renovations of the historic buildings are long over due and the work already done looks great. To follow what’s going on I’ve started a flickr set, Downer Ave. New Land Enterprise Development, that I will update with new pictures to keep track of the progress.
