Milwaukee-based Mandel Group Inc. recently began the process of pulverizing the demolished buildings from the former Pfister & Vogel tannery site in downtown Milwaukee, where the company will build the North End development.
Almost 25,000 tons of concrete will be crushed by a 13-foot tall, 72-ton quarry-grade crusher. Up to 1,500 tons of concrete will be crushed each day. The process is expected to be complete in early March.
The concrete will be recycled and reused as base fill for the $175 million development of condominiums, apartments and retail space. The development will have 483 housing units and 25,000 square feet of retail space when it is completed in five to seven years.
