Who really owns it?: Milwaukee Cold Storage Co. warehouse

The historic Milwaukee Cold Storage Co. warehouse in Walker’s Point is currently vacant, but may eventually be redeveloped by its new owner.

An affiliate of Milwaukee-based J. Jeffers & Co. this spring purchased the building at 100 S. Second St. for $300,000, according to state records.

Josh Jeffers, president and CEO of J. Jeffers & Co., described the building as a high-quality asset with “Class A locational attributes and linkages,” though he has no immediate development plans for it. He said in an email his firm may hang onto it for a few years before something materializes.

The 71,500-square-foot warehouse building was constructed in 1892, according to city records.

Address: 100 S. Second St.
Owner: 100 South 2nd Street LLC
Assessed: $1,136,000
