Seven developers respond to RFP for “net zero energy” development in Bay View

Seven development firms responded to a request for proposals from the city of Milwaukee for the former Army Reserve site in the Bay View neighborhood. The city solicited proposals for the purchase and development of the 5.6-acre site at 2372 S. Logan Ave.

The developers that responded to the RFP include: Minneapolis-based Sherman & Associates, Milwaukee-based HD Development, the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee, Milwaukee-based Direct Current, North Carolina-based Traditional Neighborhood Design, Milwaukee-based New Land Enterprises and Milwaukee-based Vetter Denk.

The Department of City Development did not release any details about the proposals submitted by the developers.

This is the first time the City of Milwaukee has requested development proposals in which the development must produce the same amount of renewable energy as the energy that’s consumed on-site. This means development proposals should contain alternative energy sources, such as solar panels.

“We’re thrilled with the interest expressed in this green concept and the continued interest we’re seeing in neighborhood developments,” said Mayor Tom Barrett. “We’re leading by example to grow the local demand for green technologies and create green jobs.”
