Turner Hall Restaurant will not open this season
September 30, 2014 04:22 PM
The restaurant at Turner Hall, an historic building at 1034 N. 4th St. in downtown Milwaukee located across the street from the BMO Harris Bradley Center, will not open for the upcoming winter sports season, BMO Harris Bradley Center president Steve Costello announced today.

“We have jointly agreed with the Turner Ballroom Preservation Trust that we will not reopen Turner Hall Restaurant for the coming season,” Costello said. “We are turning our full focus to working with the new Milwaukee Bucks ownership and our other tenants to enhance the fan experience inside our building.”

New Bucks owners Marc Lasry and Wes Edens are working on plans for new arena, that the NBA says is necessary for Milwaukee to keep an NBA franchise long-term. Plans for a new arena put the future of the BMO Harris Bradley Center, built in 1988, in doubt.

“While we have had success in helping re-establish Turner Hall as a great place to gather for food and fun before BMO Harris Bradley Center events, our future focus must remain on the BMO Harris Bradley Center,” Costello said. “Our building’s challenges are well-known. At this point in the life of the Center, and with new Bucks ownership in place, it makes more sense to devote our energy and resources to working with them to draw fans back to the stands and recapture the building’s energy. There’s a lot of excitement about the upcoming season, and we look forward to doing everything we can within our walls to provide the very best live entertainment experience possible."

Turner Hall, built in 1883, is also used for concerts, gymnastics, rock climbing and community forums.
The restaurant at Turner Hall closed in 2010 after it had been operated by R.C. Schmidt. Then in 2012 it was reopened by the BMO Harris Bradley Center under an agreement to lease the space from the Milwaukee Turners and the Turner Ballroom Preservation Trust.

The restaurant was closed during the summer, except for private events, and opened during the winter sports season to serve patrons attending events at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

“We have enjoyed our two-year relationship with Turner Hall Restaurant and we wish the Trust all the best in the future,” Costello said. “Turner Hall is a beautiful building and an important part of our city’s rich heritage. It holds solid potential for the right operator.”

API Healthcare HQ sold for $13 million
September 30, 2014 12:08 PM
An affiliate of Glen Allen, Va.-based Morse Capital Partners recently purchased the two-story, 73,756-square-foot API Healthcare corporate headquarters office building at 1550 Innovation Way in Hartford for $13 million, according to state records.

The property was sold by an affiliate of KBS Construction Inc. Joe Powers and Jeff Rowlett of Marcus & Millichap marketed the property for the seller and secured the buyer.

API has about 11 years remaining on a 17-year lease (signed in 2008) for the building, which was constructed on a 21-acre site in 2004.

"It's a passive investment (for Morse Capital Partners)," Powers said.

Earlier this year, General Electric acquired API Healthcare, which is a health care specific vendor focused on workforce management software and analytics. API’s solutions – staffing and scheduling, patient classification, human resources, talent management, payroll, time and attendance, business analytics, and staffing agency offerings – are used by more than 1,600 hospitals and staffing agencies in the U.S.

Manufacturers picked up the pace in September
September 30, 2014 12:10 PM
Manufacturing activity in southeastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois saw an uptick in growth in September, according to a new report.

The Marquette-ISM Report on Manufacturing showed the seasonally adjusted Purchasing Managers Index was at 63.2 in September, up from 59.6 in August.

Any number above 50 indicates growth, while below 50 signals contraction. The PMI has measured above 50 for seven of the past nine months.

Respondents in the September survey said:
  • “Demand for parts for class 8 trucks and RV remains very strong.”
  • “Ag market seeing big drops.”
  • “We are hearing from our reps that they are quoting a lot of projects.”
New orders, production, employment, inventories, prices, backlog of orders, exports and imports were all growing in September. Supplier deliveries were slowing, while customers’ inventories were declining.

Regarding these indices, respondents said:
  • “Capacity is tightening for many suppliers, who have reduced capacity during the recession and never added it back.”
  • “Our backlog has been reduced due to lack of incoming orders. This is not typical of our industry at this time.”
  • “We are hearing from our sales reps that there is a significant amount of order coming in very soon.”
  • “We are unsure as to why the orders have slowed up.”
  • “Some of our suppliers have been very busy so their lead times have increased.”
  • “We just started marketing more export business.”
  • “We had a sales pick up.”
  • “Reluctance to build their own inventory will impact orders next two to three quarters.”
Blue collar employment was growing at a slower rate in September, while white collar employment was growing at a slightly faster rate.

Regarding employment, respondents said:
  • “Finding good employees remains a challenge.”
  • “We will need to have some layoffs for a short time.”
  • “Trying to hire welders and assemblers.”
  • “We’re short a few people.”
  • “There is a shortage of welders.”
The six month outlook shifted in a positive directions, with about 60 percent of those surveyed expecting positive conditions over the next six months, 40 percent expecting the same conditions and 0 percent expecting worse conditions.

Water Council to receive SBA cluster funding
September 30, 2014 11:02 AM
The U.S. Small Business Administration announced today that the Milwaukee Water Council will be one of four regional industry innovation clusters to receive new federal funding to fuel growth.

Already convening the highest concentration of companies focused on water technology in the nation, the Milwaukee cluster will utilize $545,892 in SBA funding to establish a Center of Excellence for Freshwater Innovation and Small Business Development. Co-located in the recently launched Global Water Center, the Center of Excellence will provide a myriad of small business services, including technology transfer, counseling, acceleration and mentorship.

U.S. Small Business Administration Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet today announced the SBA’s support of the four new Regional Innovation Clusters, adding to its portfolio of regional innovation networks across the country.

“Clusters are public-private partnerships that are driving innovation and job creation in our most promising regional hubs for innovation,” Contreras-Sweet said. “SBA has built a strategic infrastructure of financing and consulting networks in key regions to help new companies launch and small companies grown, particularly in underserved communities across the country. We’re unleashing the full potential of entrepreneurs who are developing cutting-edge products and processes that will help ensure American global competitiveness, creating support systems for small businesses in regions with the most need.”

The other three industry clusters to receive new SBA funding are: The Marine Industries Science and Technology Cluster, I-10 Corridor (Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida); the Autonomous and Unmanned Systems Cluster, southeastern New Mexico; and the Retail, Supply Chain and Food Processing Cluster of the Ozarks Region, northwest Arkansas, northeast Oklahoma and southeast Missouri.

SBA’s funding will be provided to each clusters organizing entity to strengthen opportunities for small businesses within the cluster.

The SBA allocation for Milwaukee came after Mayor Tom Barrett led a Milwaukee delegation to the White House to meet with members of President Barack Obama’s economic development team in July. Other members of that Milwaukee delegation included: Rich Meeusen, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Badger Meter Inc.; Todd Adams, president and CEO of Rexnord Corp.; Julia Taylor, president of the Greater Milwaukee Committee; Mike Lovell, president of Marquette University; Mark Mone, interim chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee; Charlie Adams, chief engineer of A.O. Smith Corp.; Tim Hannegan, A.O. Smith lobbyist; and Dean Amhaus, president and CEO of The Water Council.

“I was proud to  share Milwaukee’s success with the White House.  Milwaukee is establishing itself as the Fresh Coast of the United States. The Milwaukee region has quickly become recognized as a world hub for water research, education and economic development,” Barrett said. “We are advancing our global position by becoming a magnet that attracts creative talent, innovative ideas, and a city and region recognized as a water leader in tomorrow’s world. We have a history of successfully building small businesses in the water technology industry as evidenced by the current list of multi-national water technology corporations, many which began in the city more than a century ago.”

Since 2010, the SBA has invested in regional clusters throughout the United States. The goal of the SBA’s involvement in clusters is to increase small business participation and economic activity. For more information on the SBA’s clusters initiative, visit www.sba.gov/clusters.

Ryan Cos. seeks TIF for proposed Oak Creek industrial development
September 30, 2014 11:09 AM
Ryan Companies U.S. Inc. plans to build a 230,000-square-foot industrial space development on a 23-acre site in Oak Creek and is seeking tax incremental financing assistance for the project from the city.

The site, located at 813 W. College Ave., is currently used for rock crushing by an excavating contractor, said John Dunneback, director of development for Ryan Cos.

Ryan is developing plans for a two-building industrial development on the site. Plans submitted for the site earlier this year showed a 159,840-square-foot building and a 70,200-square-foot building.

“We’re in the infancy stages of the project,” said Dunneback, who declined to comment on specifics of the project.

The project is currently speculative in nature, but some potential users are showing interest in the buildings, Dunneback said.

“There is interest currently in purchasing both buildings,” he said. “There’s a lot of activity, but we have yet to settle on anything yet. We are actively talking to multiple groups.”

Dunneback also declined to disclose the amount of TIF funds that Ryan Cos. is seeking for the project.

“We’re going through negotiations (with city officials),” he said.

According to a TIF application submitted by Ryan Cos. to the city for the project, the cost of the site is estimated at $1.5 million and the private development cost is estimated at $10 million, a total of $11.5 million. In addition, the cost of public improvements are estimated at about $4.5 million. The total value of the public and private improvements for the project is estimated at about $16 million.

Ryan Cos.’ TIF application said the justification for seeking the funds includes: “site geography is unsuitable for development and construction,” “lack of public utilites to proximity of site” and “geotechnical uncertainties will cause this site to not be developed in the foreseeable future.”

“There’s some subsurface issues,” Dunneback said. “There is definitely some work that needs to be done.”

Information submitted by Ryan Cos. earlier this year said the site requires nearly $2.24 million in “extraordinary costs” to prepare the site for development.

“This site has historically been used as a clean fill landfill site,” director of community Doug Seymour wrote in a city report this summer. “It’s development poses several challenges due to its topography, environmental restrictions and proximity to utilities. The scale and quality of the development at this location would be restricted if not for public sector assistance to assist with extraordinary development costs.”

The appeal of the site for industrial development is its proximity to I-94, Dunneback said.

“It’s less than half a mile to the interstate,” he said.

The southeastern Wisconsin industrial space vacancy rate has been on a steady decline since 2008 and was at 6.05 percent during the second quarter of 2014, according to Xceligent. The performance of the region’s industrial real estate market has prompted Ryan Cos. and other developers to work on plans for new buildings.

Task Force estimates cultural assets need $445 million over next 20 years
September 29, 2014 11:52 AM
Funding a new arena, completing deferred maintenance and making capital improvements to the Milwaukee region's cultural assets will cost about $445 million, according to the Cultural & Entertainment Capital Needs Task Force.

Jay Williams, a Task Force co-chair, laid out the potential uses and annual funds required for the Milwaukee Art Museum/War Memorial, Milwaukee Public Museum, Marcus Center for the Performing Arts and the Milwaukee County Zoo in a report at its meeting Monday morning at the Milwaukee Public Museum. The figures included estimates from a Public Policy Forum report about the issue.

The costs average out to $33.9 million in annual funds each year for the next two decades.

Deferred maintenance costs are expected to require a $105 million investment over the next 20 years. Among the deferred maintenance costs awaiting funding: replacement of exterior windows at MAM, modernizing the Marcus Center’s Todd Wehr Theater elevator and upgrading the fire alarm system at MPM.

Capital improvements will require about $140 million. The funds would be used for projects including: a new entrance and bus turnaround at MPM, a renovation of Vogel Hall at the Marcus Center, reinstallation of collections at MAM and new hippo and sea lion exhibits at the zoo.

A new downtown arena would cost an estimated $500 million, with $300 million of that expected from the new Milwaukee Bucks owners, minority owners and private contributions, the Task Force said. That means about 40 percent of the project would be publicly financed.

The Task Force pointed out that this is far less public financing than has been required for other recent urban arenas nationwide. A Marquette University Law School study found that of for 23 arenas constructed between 1995 and 2016, the average share of public financing was more than 70 percent.

The figures all assume a 4.25 percent borrowing rate, level payments over 20 years and general obligation debt.

Williams compared the annual cost of $33.9 million to other annual spending for programs in Milwaukee. Miller Park, for example, costs $26.8 million each year, while $261 million is spent on county transportation (airport, highways and transit) and $1.98 billion is spent on Milwaukee County schools (all Milwaukee Public Schools, charter, choice and Milwaukee County suburban schools).

The Task Force also evaluated potential sources of funds. Among those proposed: a consumption tax on beer, liquor and cigarettes for the four county metro area; Tax Incremental Financing (TIF), where future gains in taxes are used to subsidize current improvements in a particular geographic area; a ticket tax for all paid attendees, regardless of county of residence or ticket purchase location; and an increased sales tax.

Task Force members discussed the options in small groups and shared their questions about the options with those gathered at the public meeting. The Task Force will continue to gather questions and provide information for a couple of weeks and reconvene on Oct. 14 to compile a report on its findings.

“The next phase is really to move into the visioning,” Williams said. “The critical thing going forward is…once we move into the next phase…we do have to do some sophisticated polling to understand what’s possible. We’ve got a lot of good people putting visions together, but we’ve got to have a vision we can all get behind.”

Two public listening sessions regarding the options will be held, following the meeting on Oct. 14, from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., and on Oct. 16 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

After it has released its report in December, the Task Force plans to disband.

Dorner named Milwaukee Downtown economic development director
September 29, 2014 10:39 AM
Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21, has hired Matt Dorner to serve as its economic development director.

Dorner has more than 10 years of urban planning, community and economic development experience, most recently as assistant director/economic development specialist for the Village of Menomonee Falls Community Development Department. There, he was responsible for economic and community development projects including the creation of Tax Incremental District No. 12, and a downtown matching grant program that boosted more than $700,000 in private sector investment.

At Milwaukee Downtown, Dorner will lead the deployment of economic development initiatives laid out in the Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21 strategic plan. He will also work to retain, grow and attract both retail and office tenants to the central business district.

“From concept to fruition, Matt brings efficiency and tenacity to all stages of a project,” said Beth Weirick, chief executive officer of Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21. “His track record for developing incentive packages, implementing creative placemaking and luring new development to underutilized areas, makes him a strong asset to our organization. We’re thrilled to add his talents to our team.”

Milwaukee Downtown’s five-year plan included the creation of the economic development director position in 2012. It was previously held by Steven Looft.

Dorner will be responsible for updating the CEO call program; building a rapport with national site selectors; analyzing and maintaining current market data; identifying existing incentives and opportunities for new incentives at the state, city and county level; and serving as a conduit for information, options and referrals among building owners, real estate representatives and prospective tenants, according to Milwaukee Downtown.

U.S. Bank Center parking structure re-opens
September 29, 2014 11:55 AM
The parking structure at the U.S. Bank Center in downtown Milwaukee has been re-opened, after it had been closed last week, a U.S. Bank spokeswoman said this morning.

About 1,000 downtown employees had to find somewhere else to park while the structure was closed. Most of them were parking last week at a lot near Henry Maier Festival Park and a shuttle transported them to the U.S. Bank Center at 777 E. Wisconsin Ave.

The parking structure, located at 716 E. Clybourn St., was closed because of concern about the movement of a wall. The movement of a north wall of the structure was caused by excavation work being done on the construction of the 833 East office building next to the parking structure. Irgens is building the 17-story tower at 833 E. Michigan St. The general contractor is CG Schmidt Inc.

After the movement of the parking structure wall, U.S. Bank closed the parking structure, stabilized it with support beams, and reopened it last week Monday after it was determined safe for use.

However, an engineer with the original contractor of the parking structure decided to bring in a third party to evaluate the structure, and it was again closed on Tuesday.

‘Milwaukee’s Finest’ seeking nominations for 2015 campaign
September 29, 2014 11:59 AM
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation-Wisconsin Chapter is eying a $60,000 fundraising goal as it enters the fourth year of its Milwaukee’s Finest Campaign.

The nonprofit organization has opened up the nomination process for the 2015 campaign and is encouraging southeastern Wisconsin’s business community to nominate young professionals deemed promising future leaders.

Through the Milwaukee’s Finest Campaign, a lineup of the region’s most accomplished young professionals compete to raise as much money as possible for CFF in whatever ways they find most effective.

Funds collected benefit the organization’s mission to raise awareness of cystic fibrosis and raise money toward a cure of the chronic disease, which causes mucus to accumulate in the lungs and digestive tract among other areas in the body.

Along with fundraising for 10 weeks, honorees are paired with a family impacted by cystic fibrosis so that they can learn about the effects of the disease firsthand. Honorees also get an opportunity to tour the cystic fibrosis care center and research lab at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and attend professional coaching sessions to gain insight on viable fundraising strategies.

At the end of the 10-week stretch, from March through May, the honoree who has raised the most money will be named “Milwaukee’s Finest” and will receive the “Breath of Life” award.

The campaign is “a great entry for emerging leaders in the Milwaukee area” to become part of a large-scale philanthropic effort, said Jon Donahue, vice president, private banking, at Johnson Bank and a member of the Milwaukee’s Finest committee.

While the fundraising initiative collects proceeds for CFF, it also engages greater Milwaukee’s young professionals in the community and opens up a new networking outlet.

“You will walk away from the experience as I have…feeling good about yourself, feeling good about you’re doing something for somebody else, and you’re going to meet some great people along the way who will be, as I’ve found in my own personal life, great friends who will be with you for a long time,” Stew Brase told perspective honorees at a kick-off event CFF hosted at Evolution Milwaukee last week.

Brase is a director at Ernst & Young and also serves as a corporate recruitment chairperson for the campaign.

On the corporate side, the campaign benefits participating companies with “visibility” and “recognition,” as it reinforces corporate responsibility, Brase said.

“And there’s a corporate responsibility that goes along with being part of the community, which is ‘you should want your people to want to make the environment around them better,’” he said.

Last year’s fundraiser, which BizTimes Media sponsored, generated $48,000 among 11 honorees, surpassing the campaign’s $45,000 goal. Honorees included employees from OS Inc., Robert W. Baird & Co., Rockwell Automation, Johnson Bank, Johnson Controls, and Ernst & Young.

Nominations from companies of all sizes and industries are encouraged for the 2015 initiative. Nominations are submitted through a form and are typically authored by supervisors or peers of young professionals. The campaign will also accept applications from young professionals who have not been nominated by a colleague or employer.

Nomination forms are due Thursday, Feb. 5. Individuals nominated are then required to send CFF an application detailing their professional and civic achievements by Thursday, Feb. 12.
