The two main focus points of the plan are Kinnickinnic Avenue and the potential new addition of a Metra stop on the Kenosha Racine Milwaukee line just north of the development site.
The Solvay Coke site is at a crossroads for these districts where its location makes it an ideal locationto be developed in a way that unites these distinct Milwaukee neighborhoods.Our goal for the Solvay Coke site is to create an urban development that serves as a transitionfrom its industrial past to a new sustainable future. The proposal combines high density housing,including mixed use development, with commercial spaces, all anchored by an industrial base.Placing a focus on making the river the amenity, for the immediate area and the whole city ofMilwaukee, it could and should be.
The Solvay Coke site will be a popular and vibrant, multi-faceted destination for commuters,residents, workers and visitors to the City of Milwaukee.
