“As the rental market in downtown Milwaukee expands, residents are looking for environmentally sound facilities and more contemporary amenities. We are excited to meet that demand by bringing Avenir to the Park East Corridor.”
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.
