Located just north of downtown and nestled in densely populated neighborhoods, the Historic King Drive BID offers great potential for developers and investors. Under the board leadership of Welford Sanders, the BID just kicked off a planning process to bring together architects, developers, financial institutions, and city officials to identify development hotspots and create site designs. The process is being managed by Community Design Solutions from the School of Architecture and Urban Planning at the UW-Milwaukee and funded by the BID, LISC, and the Mandel Group.
Since 2004, LISC has focused financial and technical resources into the Washington Park neighborhood east of the park. After several years of planning and hard work the neighborhood is seeing some remarkable results. Just last week, Habitat for Humanity announced a $20 million investment in Washington Park to build and rehab 150 homes. This is a major investment toward the neighborhood's goal of improving housing conditions for residents.
