Revitalizing 30th Street corridor neighborhoods

Sean Ryan, for the Milwaukee Business Journal on August 19:

The Midwest Energy Research Consortium is negotiating to lease three floors of the former Eaton Corp. research building in Milwaukee to create an incubator for start-up energy, power and controls companies.

Also this week, homeowners facing foreclosure within a mile of that research building could get support from a $3.6 million new program proposed by the Northwest Side Community Development Corp. Both projects are among the ongoing effort to bring employers and jobs back to the 30th Street Industrial Corridor and improve the surrounding neighborhoods.

NWSCDC Launches Northwest Impact

Sean Ryan wrote about our launch in the Milwaukee Business Journal on August 1:

The Northwest Side Community Development Corp. in July kicked off a $4 million program to acquire, rehab and sell vacant, foreclosed houses in Milwaukee.

The nonprofit organization acquired three houses in July: two from the city of Milwaukee for about $1,000 each and one donated by U.S. Bank. Repairs for each will be in the $30,000 to $40,000 range. The goal is to resell the properties to new owners for at least that much, said Howard Snyder, executive director of the Northwest Side CDC.
