The 147,300-square-foot Pewaukee Plaza at 1256 W. Capitol Drive lost its anchor tenant more than five years ago and MLG is hoping to revitalize the center and re-lease the building.

“We want to focus first on the anchor tenant,” said Andy Bruce, principal of MLG Capital. “It is in a good location, well signed and has a stop light at both entrances. It just needs some TLC and local aggressive leasing and local ownership.”

MLG Capital purchased the property from Miami Beach, Florida-based LNR Property LLC, according to state records.

MLG Capital purchases property across the country for its investors but is always looking for opportunities locally, Bruce said.

“This purchase was a chance to add value back to our own backyard and a nice opportunity for our investors,” Bruce said.
