The Milwaukee Common Council officially approved the parcel transfer of the vacant Northridge Boston Store to the City of Milwaukee Tuesday, marking another step towards revamping the dilapidated mall.
The city is now looking to redevelop the entire Northridge Mall into light industrial space, with developing a public plaza and neighborhood-oriented stores and restaurants near the northwest corner of Brown Deer Road and 76th Street, according to a press release.
An official date for development has not been given, but plan to start the development soon, and that they would like to begin in early 2018. The Vacant space that was once a Boston store sat empty for many years until William Penzey, owner of Penzey Spices, recently gave the space to the city.
“This is just the beginning of business increased development in the area, in the New Year we will see a whole new 9th District,” said Chantia Lewis Alderwoman for Milwaukee’s 9th district.
