Park East Corridor
The Park East Corridor consists of over 60 acres, 24 of which are prime sites for redevelopment. The properties are located within the Milwaukee Downtown, in close proximity to the Milwaukee River. Milwaukee County owns 16 acres and is currently selling their properties through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process.

Park East’s Northern Gateway Continues to Take Shape
The Park East’s gateway to the north has been visibly transformed with the completion of the Flatiron as well as the first two phases of The North End development project. In addition to the Riverwalk extension, the recent addition to the North End project includes the construction of Denim Park, the Park East's newest public plaza and the placement of the North End Water Tower. The historic, 44,000 pound structure once served the former Pfister & Vogel tannery, which occupied the North End's seven acre site along North Water Street and its preservation marks the new development rising from the tannery site.

MSOE Soccer Field & Parking Structure
Opened in late August 2013, MSOE's new soccer stadium, which sits on top of a 382 stall parking structure, was completed just in time to kick-off their team's fall season. In addition to the soccer stadium, a public park abuts the development to the North, along North Water Street.
Avenir Breaks Ground
Excavation for the first phase of the Park East’s newest project began on October 7, 2013. Once complete, The Avenir will occupy the entire 3-acre block bordered by N Milwaukee, N Jefferson & E. Lyon streets and E. Ogden Avenue. The project’s first phase will be 104 apartments, 7,000 square feet of commercial space and a parking structure.
