Growing Power Inc., a non-profit urban farm organization at 5500 W. Silver Spring Dr., Milwaukee, plans to build a five-story building for classrooms, offices, food and fish growing space, a demo kitchen, a retail food outlet and food processing space.
Growing Power and its president and chief executive officer, Will Allen, have received national attention for Allen’s efforts to create sustainable urban farms that provide healthy food for lower income individuals in areas, such as inner city neighborhoods, that have a lack of grocery stores. The organization works to provide neighborhood-based sustainable agricultural education.
As a result of its success, Growing Power says it needs more space to support production, classes, meetings, meal preparation, offices and on-site warehousing.

Integrated Mail plans expansion
Integrated Mail Industries, a mail processing company, plans to add a 50,000-square-foot expansion and 50 employees to its facility at 3450 W. Hopkins St., in the central city of Milwaukee.
The company currently has 120 employees in an 180,000-square-foot facility.
The addition space is needed because, “we’ve been expanding in our printing in all of the direct mail operations that we do,” said Integrated Mail chairman Bruce Arbit.

The company is making rezoning and certified survey map modification requests to the city as it prepares for the expansion, Arbit said.
The company owns 10 acres at the site and plans to provide 2 acres to the city to create a stormwater detention area to serve businesses in the 30th Street Industrial Corridor.
