The DNR, City of Milwaukee, and 30th Street Industrial Corridor Corporation have partnered to transform properties in the Corridor into productive parcels of land for industrial, commercial, residential or mixed uses. The partners recently closed out two EPA Brownfield Assessment grants totaling $800,000 and prepared a final report documenting the successful outcomes achieved.
Century City represents the core component of the Corridor's revitalization. Century City will be a high-quality, market ready, modern business park with a welcoming "Greenway and Gateway" that is anticipated to attract new businesses and jobs, focus private reinvestment in the area, while improving surrounding land uses. With the predevelopment phase now complete, RACM is prepared to sell land and achieve its intended goal of attracting companies and jobs to the heart of Milwaukee.
Cream City Farms is Milwaukee's newest, most sustainable commercial urban farm.
