Japanese restaurant planned for The Point on the River

A Japanese steakhouse and sushi bar is planned for The Point on the River building at 106 W. Seeboth St. in Milwaukee’s Walker’s Point neighborhood.

The restaurant, called The Screaming Tuna, will occupy a 5,700-square-foot space in the building with an additional 1,000 square feet of outdoor private patio space along the riverwalk. The owner of the restaurant will be Alessio and Maria Forcappa.

The Milwaukee Economic Development Corp. (MEDC) Tuesday approved a $350,000 loan for the project. In May the MEDC rejected a $700,000 loan request for the project. The 12-story, 147-condominium The Point on the River building was originally known as First Place on the River. The project was placed into receivership last year. The original developer, KeyBridge Development was replaced by Milwaukee-based Mandel Group Inc., which was hired to complete the development for the banks that loaned money for the project.
