Joseph Zilber, the founder of Milwaukee-based Zilber Ltd., plans to purchase two small pieces of vacant property from Milwaukee County for his redevelopment of the former Pabst brewery property in downtown Milwaukee.
Zilber plans to buy a 12,700-square-foot, triangular-shaped property at 721 W. Winnebago St. for $381,000 and a 5,839-square-foot strip of land just north of the other parcel for $161,000.
The county’s Economic and Community Development Committee recently voted to recommend approval of the sale.
Zilber is buying the two parcels to create a roundabout at the confluence of West Winnebago Street and West Juneau Avenue.
In addition, part of the triangular-shaped property would be added to the brewery project’s vacant block 1 parcel.
