Ramco-Gershenson Properties Trust is planning a $9.5 million remodeling of the West Allis Towne Centre shopping center.
Farmington Hills, Mich.-based Ramco-Gershenson Properties Trust, real estate investment trust (REIT), is planning a $9.5 million remodeling of the West Allis Towne Centre shopping center at 6740-6800 W. Greenfield Ave.
Ramco-Gershenson wants to improve the shopping center’s access to the highly successful Summit Place office complex, located to the north. So the firm plans to demolish the Fashion Bug tenant space and vacant spaces formerly occupied by Hallmark on the north side of the shopping center to build a new access road through the shopping center that will connect Greenfield Avenue with Summit Place, where about 4,000 people work.
The project would also include the creation of two new tenant spaces, a 9,091-square-foot space for three tenants in the eastern half and a 2,573-square-foot space on the western half.
Ramco-Gershenson also plans to prepare two pads in the shopping center for future outlots. The firm is hoping to attract a restaurant or other tenants to building separate buildings on the outlots.
Summit Place and the West Allis Towne Centere were parts of the former Allis Chalmers complex that were redeveloped into their current uses.
Tenants at the West Allis Towne Centre include K-Mart, Office Depot, Dollar Tree and Famous Footwear.
