Massive New Project Announced for The Brewery
250,000 Square Foot Multi-Purpose Educational Facility Planned
Blue Ribbon Management LLC, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, submitted to the City of Milwaukee Plan Commission today its plans for a multi-purpose educational facility that will be developed through the restoration, renovation and interior modification of the former Pabst Bottling facility (Building 29), located between 9th and 10th streets and Juneau and Highland in the northwest corner of Downtown Milwaukee.
Michael Kelly, Vice President of Blue Ribbon Management, said that the new facility would include student housing space, hotel space for visiting guests, students and professors, classrooms, amenities and a publically accessible food court. The Plans which were submitted today are scheduled to be reviewed by the Plan Commission at its regular meeting on November 10. Subject to Plan Commission approval and a certificate of appropriateness from the City of Milwaukee Historic Preservation Commission, construction would begin this winder with the building ready for occupancy in the Fall of 2016. The building will contain two-, three- and four-bedroom configurations (both one and two story), have extended-stay hotel rooms and a full amenities package including a large exercise facility.
John Kersey, President of The Brewery Project LLC said that the transaction transferring ownership from The Brewery Project to Blue Ribbon Management was expected to be completed later this year. “We think this new, yet historic facility will make a positive contribution to the well-being of our community and its ability to attract students and educators from throughout the world who will hopefully choose to live, work and invest in Milwaukee after they have completed their educational pursuits,” Mr Kersey said.
