Since the approval of the 2006 Central District Master Plan, Shorewood has experienced - and still is- revitalization of it's commercial districts. Following are projects completed over the past 10 years.
LightHorse 4041 Mixed-Use
This project was completed in 2011 by the Mandel Group. It is a six story mixed-use with 84 apartments, a relocated Walgreens and a separate shared parking structure kitty-corner along Bartlett Avenue. The parking deck includes underground parking for residents and the other levels serve the local businesses, neighboring residents and the public. Twenty percent of the apartments are affordable housing units.
The land was two large surface parking lots serving the local businesses and residents. A Planned Development District was created.
Corner Stone 4500 Oakland, Mixed-Use
This project was completed in 2010 by WiRED Development. It is a three- and four-story building with 22 apartments and five first floor businesses. Parking is underground for the residents with rear parking for businesses.
The land was a vacated gas station and surface parking lot in Whitefish Bay. The project involved detaching land from Whitefish Bay. A Planned Development District was created.
Ravenna, 4525 Oakland, Mixed Use
This project was completed in 2009 by WiRED Development. It is a four story building with 22 apartments and four first-floor businesses. Undeground parking is provided for residents and rear parking for the businesses.
Situated along the Milwaukee River, Oak Leaf Trail, and Capitol Drive, the Milwaukee River Site is a 6.9-acre, high-priority redevelopment opportunity. In 2013, the village was approached by Harbor Retirement Associates. Based out of Vero Beach, Florida, HRA Senior Living proposed a senior assisted and memory care facility at Shorewood's River District at 1111 E. Capitol Drive, the former Riverbrook restaurant location.
HRA proposed a continuous facility, having the front section along Capitol Drive as a 4-story assisted living with 60 units and a 1-story memory care with 36 units in the back section. 55 parking stalls are provided underground for staff. View the HRA PowerPoint (PDF) for more information.
