Exciting news: South Shore Family Chiropractic is planning a new building on College Avenue — a more than $1 million investment in the redevelopment of South Milwaukee.
Owner Dr. Steven Scheuing brought his plans before the Plan Commission on Monday night, where we scheduled hearings on both rezoning necessary for the development (June 20 before City Council), and the potential sale of city land for $75,000 (June 26 before the Plan Commission). We also discussed potential tax incremental financing assistance for the development, recommending up to $225,000 in support.
BizTimes posted a story on the development earlier today. Said Dr. Steven …
“My lease is up at the end of the year, and it has been my lifelong dream of owning my own property and location. This is just all of the right combination of factors. … We’re still in the planning phase, but we’re very excited to get all of the i’s dotted and t’s crossed. I’m hoping to be in the new building by the first of 2018.”
The proposed 6,368-square-foot building would be built on a combination of city-owned land near 11th and College Avenues and an adjoining privately owned parcel that once housed Sahagian Auto Body. It’s an exciting reuse of this property — a development that should be a terrific gateway for people as they enter the city.
But here’s what has me more excited: This is the latest great example of a successful local business choosing to grow in South Milwaukee. We should all be proud of that.
Dr. Steven is investing in South Milwaukee’s future. I’m hopeful the city can invest in his.
I’ll share more updates on the project as it continues through the approval process. Learn more about South Shore Family Chiropractic here.
