Featured Experience

Mixed-Use Development Is a Win for Client and Community

Brad advised the developer of 84South, a $200+ million, 48-acre mixed-use center in Greenfield, Wisconsin, that includes 350,000 square feet of retail space, along with an ambulatory surgery center and apartments. The deal, which involved complex financing, required careful negotiations between national retailers, the existing big-box tenant and a residential developer.

Navigating and integrating the multiple moving parts of the development required experience and knowledge of how a complex mixed-use development operates. Balancing the demands of competing national retailers against the desires of lenders and the City was an additional challenge. The development was named “Best Public/Private Partnership” in real estate by the Milwaukee Business Journal.
