The City of Milwaukee is partnering with the owner of the Reed Street Yards to redevelop the property into a research and technology park focused on Milwaukee's growing water industry. The Reed Street Yards is a 17-acre property in the Walker's Point neighborhood, just south of downtown Milwaukee and adjacent to the newly-opened Global Water Center.
Once complete, the Reed Street Yards will be a showcase of water technologies and practices, including a purple pipe for development-wide water recycling and bioswales and permeable paving to capture stormwater runoff. Site amenities will include an extension of the Hank Aaron State Trail through the site as part of the riverwalk along the Menomonee Canal and an interactive public plaza.
Sites at the Reed Street Yards are now available, for more information, visit www.watertechnologypark.com
