New businesses coming to Milwaukee between Spaulding and Kimball/Diversey?!

Walking to the Blue Line in the mornings I've noticed a lot of heavy work going on at the long building 2760 - 2774 N Milwaukee (from a couple doors north of Spaulding up to the Gap building). I also noticed one of the thrift shops there has a "moving sale" sign. So I was curious and looked up the permit:

...ALTERATION OF 2760+2774'S 1ST+BSMT FLRS TO 6+2 COMMERCIAL UNITS RESPECTIVELY, CONSTRUCTION OF 3RD FLR ADDITIONS, CONVERSION OF 2760+2774'S 2ND+3RD...

Walking to the Blue Line in the mornings I've noticed a lot of heavy work going on at the long building 2760 - 2774 N Milwaukee (from a couple doors north of Spaulding up to the Gap building).

I've been waiting for some fresh activity in this building! It has so much potential but is currently mostly empty. And I don't mind a good thrift/value store, but there were 4-5 in a row there. Also, I can't stand how the one shop always has all those rows of waste-down mannequins with ugly tight pants on.

Here's hoping the owner has luck filling the spaces with valuable businesses and happy residents! If anyone has any information about what might be going in there. please share.

  • Aw....I love those waist-down mannequins with ugly tight pants on.

  • Gotta be honest, this building is my favorite of all the ones along this stretch of Milwaukee. SO excited to see this getting a renovation. It's going to be beautiful.

    Other things I have been told from asking around (though have not confirmed)- M.Fishman now owns the building across from Logan (former hearth/heating store) as well as the corner building across from 2760 all the way to the corner - so I guess we can expect renovations and new tenants in those as well eventually.
