Wauwatosa’s Tosa Village is a vibrant district filled with historic buildings, quaint storefronts and chic apartments.
But those getting there via Harmonee Avenue are greeted by an underwhelming building just as they cross the Menomonee River. There lies an old, vacant commercial building, complete with weeds growing from its gutters.
The good news is the city intends to do something about it. The Community Development Authority acquired the property, located at 7746 N. Menomonee River Parkway, from Commerce State Bank this spring. That was two months after the previous owner transferred the deed to the bank to avoid foreclosure. The CDA met in early August to discuss the property.
City staff said the building will be demolished and the property will be redeveloped. The CDA could reveal details later this month.
