Park East -
In 2002, the former Park Freeway was demolished and Milwaukee County took ownership of the newly vacant land.  Spanning long stretches of Downtown Milwaukee on both the east and west sides of the Milwaukee River, the Park East area is undergoing rapid redevelopment.  Despite the land sitting vacant for over a decade, improving market forces and a renewed collaborative effort between Milwaukee County, the City of Milwaukee, and the Commercial Association of  REALTORS® Wisconsin (CARW) have produced some of Milwaukee's most significant developments in recent years.  Visit the Park East site for more information on available real estate and the history of the Park East.


Milwaukee Regional Medical Center -

The Milwaukee Regional Medical Center (MRMC) is a consortium of 6 health care institutions which include Froedtert Health, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, Medical College of Wisconsin, Curative Care Network, BloodCenter of Wisconsin, and Milwaukee County who operates its Behavioral Health Division on the campus and is also the owner of much of the land.  The MRMC Campus is an economic driver of Southeastern Wisconsin that brings together some of the highest value medical research and educators in a dense city-like environment.  Due to its unprecedented growth, the MRMC is undergoing a land use planning effort to best determine the highest value use of campus land in the future.


Aerotropolis Milwaukee -

The Aerotropolis, or "airport city", is a long term economic development effort that exists at the intersection of transportation and land use planning.  As the economy spreads throughout the globe, the transportation and logistics of goods, people, and ideas has become more important than ever.  Ensuring the efficient flow of capital to and from Milwaukee requires investment and multi-modal coordination  of transportation assets.  In order to most efficiently accomodate global enterprises, the land surrounding transportation assets can be devoted to economic uses that most benefit from that mode of transport.  Specific to Milwaukee, the County has over 200 acres of developable surplus land around General Mitchell International Airport, and the Aerotropolis Milwaukee effort is currently engaged in a land use planning effort.
