Groundswell Celebration for Adams Garden Park
May 23rd Celebration Marks the Start of Construction on the Adams Garden Park Redevelopment
Milwaukee, WI: Developers, Sharon and Larry Adams, are hosting a Groundswell Celebration to mark the start of construction for Adams Garden Park. The celebration will be held on Thursday, May 23rd, 4:00-6:00pm on the building’s grounds located at 1836 W. Fond du Lac Avenue, Milwaukee, WI 53205. The event will showcase several environmental organizations that will co-locate as tenant partners in Adams Garden Park and include a brief program at 5:00pm.
The $1 million redevelopment project will renovate a full-block assemblage of parcels, including a currently vacant commercial building, and create a vibrant environmental hub for organizations promoting clean air, pure water, healthy land and green jobs in Milwaukee. Tenant partners will include the Milwaukee Environmental Consortium, Milwaukee Water Commons, Wisconsin Conservation Voters, and Walnut Way’s Blue Skies Landscaping Program.
“We develop commercial real estate as sacred places for the common good. We are investing in blighted commercial spaces as pathways for learning, safe and beautiful spaces and long-term economic viability,” says Sharon Adams, project developer and a neighborhood resident. Other recent neighborhood developments include the Wally Schmidt Redevelopment – home to The Tandem Restaurant, Walnut Way’s Innovations and Wellness Commons, St. Ann’s Bucyrus Campus, and the planned One MKE Plaza and IKON Hotel.
The Adams Garden Park environmental hub will be a welcoming home for everyone who is committed to stewarding natural resources – neighbors, educators, naturalists, sustainable business owners, activists, gardeners and researchers. The beautifully renovated offices and open convening spaces will promote synergy among partners and promote access to experiential education for youth and families in the community. Set in a landscape oasis, the surrounding gardens will help residents experience the healing and inspirational beauty of nature in the center of the city.
Sharon and Larry Adams are Adams Garden Park’s Co-Developers and residents of the Lindsay Heights neighborhood. As the retired Co-Founders of Walnut Way Conservation Corp. the Adams have led efforts for more than two decades to strengthen the Lindsay Heights neighborhood.
