“All of Milwaukee County has a vested interest in the successful development of the Park East. We’ve come to a really exciting place where there is broad cooperation among parties, clear processes and forward momentum.”
Construction of the new world headquarters for Manpower Inc. was completed in fall 2007. The development employs 1,200 people and includes a parking structure, public plaza, and extension of the Milwaukee RiverWalk.
The 22-acre former Pabst Brewery, just west of the Park East corridor, is undergoing a complete redevelopment by Zilber Ltd. into a new neighborhood called The Brewery. In 2007, the City of Milwaukee created a $29 million Tax Incremental District to replace infrastructure, conduct environmental clean-up and make other improvements to the complex.
