Zilber Ltd. founder announced that as part of the fourth phase of his redevelopment of the former Pabst brewery complex, retail merchants from Milwaukee and southeastern Wisconsin will be given location priority and rental and/or build out assistance at the project, known as The Brewery.
Zilber is transforming the former brewery complex into a mixed-use urban neighborhood. He has gutted and sold some of the buildings to other developers.
"Today I am announcing the fourth phase of our development process, which is to give priority, in terms of retail space consideration with available assistance on rent and/or build out costs to retail establishments whose owners live and/or have retail establishments in Milwaukee and southeastern Wisconsin," Zilber said.
A special application form for priority consideration is posted online at www.thebrewerymke.com, or qualifying parties can call 414-274-2623, Zilber said.
“We are providing this opportunity to retailers who fill out the form before March 31, 2009 on a first come first serve basis," he said.
Retailers may select sites that will be available at The Brewery over the next two years, including: retail space on 9th Street and Juneau Avenue in a 900 car parking garage, which is scheduled for completion in October; the old German Methodist church at the corner of 11th and Juneau; The Brew House and Mill House on 10th and Juneau, both of which will have retail space available on the first, or second floors, "and other retail space that will be developed as we construct new residential and commercial properties on presently vacant land at The Brewery,” Zilber said.
