I finally have off this weekend so I'll get out and update with some pictures. Quite a bit of activity happening in and around the central city.

Milwaukee Pics

Visited a buddy in Milwaukee this weekend and had the opportunity to take a few pics of some major projects near downtown.

Potential Development Site: My friend works at the US Bank Building and said he saw soil testing on the site south of the Couture site bounded by Lincoln Memorial Dr, Clybourn, and 794 where there have long been rumors of a skyscraper in the works. I'll ask him to take pics if anything starts happening there.

BMO Harris Tower - only a few floors to go before it tops out.

The long-vacant Warner Theater is being rehabbed and expanded to become new performance, rehearsal, and office space for the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. More info here: Milwaukee Symphony Center

This week should be exciting. Come Friday, Milwaukee can finally put almost a decade of this Couture BS aside and move forward. Milwaukee’s own Chicago Spire.

For as much as the city of Milwaukee loves to bash the state for the streetcar, they do a mighty fine job getting in their own way. Exhibit A: Milwaukee voting against the streetcar expansion due to the fact that some city alderman didn’t like that their special interest requests weren’t met. The city is ridiculous. It’s frustrating to think where the city could be with different leadership.

Also.....no Couture update.....shocker.

Let me begin by saying I was a pretty strong streetcar supporter but, the more I think about it, the more laughable Milwaukee’s attempt at fixed rail transit seems. We have a fairly short (and in my opinion useless) starter line. We also have a half finished, now stalled, lakefront line to nowhere with no end of the line in sight. On top of that, we can’t extend the streetcar because of some individual alderman’s little pissing match. AND, the most logical extension, one that would make this system actually useful, going up the densely populated east side, isn’t even on the table. Even if it was, I could see that alderman trying to kill it. It would go through Bauman’s district and we know he isn’t a fan of density or anything that makes his Lake Drive lawyer friends upset. Between the streetcar and the Couture (the L-lines planned terminus), this whole situation has become a laughing stock.

Street cars are useless, all the disadvantages of rail and busses all in one package!

Been saying it for years but at least the Couture saga is FINALLY over. Thank God. Time to give a competent developer that lot and let Rick Barrett stick to what he knows...suburban apartments.
