Bike Share in Wauwatosa

The City of Wauwatosa is conducting a public involvement meeting to discuss a proposed Bike Share project in the city.

The meeting is scheduled for Monday, November 16th, 2015 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 PM, in the Lower Civic Room at the Wauwatosa City Hall located at 7725 West North Avenue. The objective of this meeting is to familiarize the public with the proposed bike share system and to obtain input from residents and business owners on proposed bike share station locations for the first phase of this project.

Find more information here.

The purpose of this project is to provide an alternative mode of transportation suitable for short distance point to point trips by providing users the ability to pick up a bicycle at a self-serve bike station and return it to any bike station within the system’s service area.  This first phase of this project will construct approximately 8 stations and provide approximately 56 bikes.  This bike share system will become part of the Bublr Bike Share system that currently serves the City of Milwaukee.


This is the first of two bike share projects currently proposed in the City. Additional stations will be constructed in Wauwatosa as part of a separate project in 2017.

Construction is scheduled for 2016.


Wauwatosa Housing Study & Needs Analysis
The City is undertaking its first ever city-wide Housing Study & Needs Analysis. 

The results of this Housing Study and Needs Analysis will help decision makers, stakeholders and community members develop a meaningful sense of the housing market as well as an understanding of key housing issues. The study should provide a measured assessment of present and future unmet housing demand that focuses on creating a deeper understanding of short-to-mid-term housing demand (5-year, 10-year, 15-year.) The report is intended to offer a solid, data-driven basis for formulating community-specific housing priorities, policy alternatives and intervention strategies.

A public Input Session was being held on Tuesday, November 17th from 5:30 - 7:30 PM in the Lower Civic Room at Wauwatosa City Hall.

Remnant Fire Station Site

The Community Development Authority (CDA) issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for development of the former fire station parcel.  The CDA received three proposals for the parcel from the following developers: Metropolitan Development, Phelan/WiRED, and Wangard Partners.  At the October 22, 2012 meeting, the CDA selected the Phelan/WiRED proposal as the preferred proposal subject to engaging in due diligence, further analysis, and negotiations.

Additional information related to the proposed development that the CDA has reviewed:

Presentation from January 9, 2013 neighborhood meeting.

At the CDA's July 11, 2013 meeting, the Authority approved a change to the designation of Phelan/Wired from preferred developer to chosen developer. In addition, the Authority recommended the sale of the remnant fire station parcel to Phelan/Wired for $150,000 with a building height not to exceed the maximum height allowed under the current zoning code - taking into consideration the site's potential as a gateway to the Village.

At the Common Council's October 21, 2014 meeting, a term sheet between Phelan/Wired and the City of Wauwatosa was approved.

UWM Innovation Campus
Residential Development
The Mandel Group received approval to construct a 188-unit residential development on 8.5 acres (Lot 4) at Innovation Campus. Two scenarios are proposed for this development, with the difference being the possible redevelopment of the Eschweiler buildings. Due to site constraints, both scenarios include new development consisting of six three-story buildings with underground parking wrapping around the Eschweiler buildings and demolition of the powerhouse (northernmost building). In Plan A, all four historic Eschweiler buildings are preserved for use by the Forestry Exploration Center (FEC) charter school, or some other compatible use. Some apartment amenities will also be located in the Administration building. In Plan B, if the FEC, or some other compatible use, does not materialize, Mandel will rehabilitate the Administration building for apartment amenities and office space for non-profits. Two Eschweiler buildings (Dormitory and Dairy) will be converted to walled gardens and the Engineering building will be demolished.

The Mayfair Collection - Burleigh Street
The applicant, HSA Commercial Real Estate, intends to construct a planned development for the area of the City that is commonly referred to as the Burleigh Triangle. The phased development, called the Mayfair Collection, will initially consist of 235,000 sf of adaptively reused existing warehouse space for retail tenants on the west side of the site along Hwy 45 as well as 35,000 sf of new retail and restaurant space along Burleigh Street.   Later phases consist of additional retail development along Burleigh Street, medical or related office space on a northern parcel as well as a mixed use component at the interior of the site. 

113th and Walnut - Residential development
The property was originally owned by the City of Wauwatosa and was part of the landfill. In 2007, the Common Council recommended development of this property and entered into an agreement with Toldt Development. The parcel was originally approximately 18 acres but the size has been adjusted due to the discovery of remaining landfill contamination on the western portion of the site.

Toldt Development plans construct 427 residential units in seven buildings built in a phases. The units will consist of a variety of living types including condominiums, townhomes, flats, courtyard apartments, elderly apartments and lofts. A private community center is also proposed. The living units will include a variety of sizes, types, rental rates and sales prices. Architectural and landscape guidelines were approved as part of this proposal that the project will adhere to. Overall, approximately 60 percent of the site will remain greenspace.
