Fresh Perspective for Vacant Buildings Downtown: Mount Mary Students Make Final Presentation

 

A burger bar and arcade. Pet store. Sports rental store. Pottery studio. Corner grocery. A day spa.

Those are among the ideas and designs for vacant downtown buildings that students from Mount Mary University presented to the South Milwaukee Common Council last week. You can see their presentation here, and in the images with this post.

I want to thank South Milwaukee resident Gigi Szeklinski, assistant professor and chair of the Mount Mary Interior Design Department, for bringing this project to South Milwaukee. And to the students: Your work was impressive, professionally done and, most importantly, realistic. I can see any number of these businesses succeeding in these spaces.ย My goal as mayor is to help make sure that happens.

These designs can’t and won’t sit on a shelf.

We plan to present these plans to individual property owners, encouraging reinvestment in theirย  properties, potentially with the help of the city.

Let’s get to work!

  2. Will these designs be on display for a few weeks ? If so, where will they be ? Will there be forms asking opinions of the viewers ? Very interesting.
