85 Acres On Waterfront Could Be Reclaimed
Imagine transforming a sizable swath of unused industrial property on Milwaukee’s lakefront into beautiful public spaces and new places for people to live and work. That’s exactly what the local nonprofit Harbor District Inc. (HDI) is trying to do.

The target is 85 acres of land in Milwaukee’s Harbor District, an area that thrived during the city’s industrial heyday but now sits mostly neglected. HDI is looking for creative solutions to preserve the harbor as a habitat.

The vacant land is located in three areas on the Kinnickinnic River. One of the areas was used to store coal for a Menomonee Valley power plant. Since the plant changed to natural gas, the 13-acre site has not been used. Another parcel is the former Milwaukee Solvay Coke Co. plant property. Manufacturing coke left the site with contaminated soil. The third piece of land is known as “the Grand Trunk site.” It earned its name because a ferry used to stop there to take rail cars to Michigan on the Grand Trunk Railway.
