About Us

The Economic Development Division collaborates with the public and private sectors as well as other county departments to promote economic growth for Milwaukee County residents and businesses. We also plan for the best use of the County’s surplus real-estate. We handle tax-deeded foreclosed properties located outside of the City of Milwaukee. We are also charged with managing air-space and cell-tower leases and developing strategies for the efficient management of leasing in county government. Finally, we support workforce development and economic development initiatives throughout the region.

Milwaukee County is proud to partner with Heartland Housing, Inc. to create a permanent supportive housing at 1004 N. 10th St. in Milwaukee. The re-use development will transform a vacant five-story building, formerly St. Anthony's hospital and the Milwaukee County Correctional Center. This newest development will assist a variety of households including the chronically homeless person and those persons at risk of homelessness.

The project was completed in early 2019.
