MKE Streetcar Development Guide
A Driver of Economic Development & Investment
Fostering economic development is a primary goal that was established at the onset of The Milwaukee Streetcar project. Cities such as Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis and Tucson have all seen significant development occur within close proximity to their fixed-rail systems. Milwaukee anticipates similar benefits and is taking steps to leverage the streetcar's full economic development potential.
What drives this economic boom is the attraction to permanency. Developers and businesses are drawn to fixed-rail routes because they know their investment will be serviced for the long-term. The Milwaukee Streetcar will create the same level of confidence and predictability to foster economic development, as have similar systems in other cities.
The MKE Streetcar Development & Investment Guide
To promote similar opportunities in our city, Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21 lead the creation of The MKE Streetcar Development & Investment Guide to promote the many development, redevelopment and commercial lease opportunities that exist along or within walking distance to the Phase 1 main line and Lakefront Line extension routes. The MKE Streetcar Development & Investment Guide features the most opportune development sites and available commercial spaces that benefit from the economic development potential that is being unlocked by the proximity to the initial phases of The Milwaukee Streetcar system.

Development Sites and Commercial Lease Opportunities
To direct developers, investors, brokers and business owners to the opportunities in the streetcar corridor, Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21 and its partners created this tool dedicated to provide detailed information on:
- The approximately 50 acres of underutilized sites, some currently being marketed and others not, that are well positioned for new development or redevelopment. The detailed site profiles are hosted on OppSites.com.
- The approximately 500,000+ square feet of existing office and retail space available for lease located within walking distance to the streetcar stops.
