Milwaukee County Grounds Master Plan and Design Guidelines
This document was adopted by the Common Council on December 21, 2004, is a master plan intended to give an idea of possible development including approximate size and layout of buildings. It provides a scheme for approximately 800,000 square feet of new development while minimizing the environmental impact of the development on the surrounding areas. There is an emphasis on sustainable development practices and green building design as well as the preservation of the Eschweiler complex. In developing this plan, the goal was to provide direction on creating a high quality, environmentally friendly development without identifying specific uses. The guidelines provide control over the scale and design of buildings and spaces without mandating specific building footprints or locations. This allows the City to retain control over the final design while allowing maximum flexibility for developers to develop proposals that are economically viable.
