Welcome to the 30th Street Industrial Corridor

The Redevelopment Authority of the City of Milwaukee is working with local, state and federal partners on a plan to redevelop the 30th Street Industrial Corridor, similar to the long-range efforts that went into the revitalization of the Menomonee Valley.

 

 

Overview

The City of Milwaukee is in the midst of an ambitious effort to transform the 30th Street Industrial Corridor into a major modern employment center and economic hub.  The Corridor encompasses an 880-acre area within the City and includes a range of distinct neighborhoods with different issues and opportunities. 

 

 

Project News & Updates

     

 

Catalytic Projects

Catalytic development sites contain specific properties or clusters of properties that have the required critical mass or strategic location such that, if redeveloped, they have the potential to trigger wider revitalization of the Corridor.  These sites also frequently pose significant challenges that impede private development such as environmental contamination, significant demolition costs, infrastructure deficiencies, and lower densities.  In the face of these challenges, public leadership is often needed to spur high-quality redevelopment at these locations. 

 

 

Economic Development Master Plan

The City of Milwaukee has undertaken an ambitious effort to transform the 30th Street Corridor into a modern employment center and economic hub for the Near North neighborhood. An multidisciplinary team headed by consultant S. B. Friedman & Company worked collaboratively to inform and guide future economic development in the area including the transformation of the former Tower Automotive site. The goal of the 30th Street Corridor Master Plan is to provide a realistic, market feasible and implementable vision to achieve this transformation.

 

     

 

Century City Targeted Investment Neighborhood Program

The Targeted Investment Neighborhood (TIN) program is a neighborhood revitalization strategy in which the City of Milwaukee, working with a neighborhood community partner, focuses resources in a relatively small area (6 to 12 city blocks) in an effort to stabilize and increase owner-occupancy, strengthen property values and improve the physical appearance of a neighborhood.

Business Improvement Disricts

In Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), property owners in designated geographic areas voluntarily collect annual assessments which are spent on projects that enhance the local business environment. These may include improvements to the streetscape, marketing efforts, business recruitment activity, and security programs.
