City unveils southeast side area plan for public review

City of Milwaukee officials recently unveiled the southeast side area plan, and held a public hearing on the plan last week. The plan can be viewed at:

The southeast side planning area extends from the Milwaukee Harbor to Mitchell International Airport, from the lakefront to the Kinnickinnic River on the north and to South 27th Street on the south. It includes the Bay View, Fernwood, Tippencanoe, Town of Lake and Holler Park neighborhoods.

The southeast side area plan is highlighted by three catalytic projects:

  • A town center around Layton and Howell avenues near the airport. The town center would include large, multi-use developments in a new commercial center, supported by a new local street grid, sidewalk connections, a public square and a bike path.
  • Redevelopment of a former Army Reserve site at 2372 S. Logan Ave. in Bay View to multi-family or senior housing. If commuter rail service is added between Kenosha and downtown Milwaukee the five-acre Logan Avenue property could have a passenger rail station and could attract transit-oriented development.
  • Redevelopment of the underutilized riverfront land along the Kinnickinnic River, creating a new neighborhood with commercial and residential development.
