(MILWAUKEE) — After sending out a region wide request for property marketing proposals, the Community Development Authority of the City of West Allis (CDA) has selected Cushman & Wakefield | The Boerke Company to market separate development sites within their city limits. The unique opportunities include development sites such as the highly visible 7.6 acre Six Points development site at the southwest corner of W. Greenfield Avenue and Six Points Crossing, and an 11.5 acre build-to-suit opportunity at Juneau Highlands Development site located at 1960 S 67 Place.

When asked why businesses should consider the city of West Allis, West Allis Mayor Dan Devine said “West Allis offers a great centralized location in the metro Milwaukee area.” Mayor Devine then added, “Businesses and employees enjoy a skilled workforce, convenience to the Interstate system, and access to public transportation.”

The 7.6 acre Six Points Crossing site is just west of the recently built, and fully occupied Six Points Apartment multi-family development. With recent announcements from large employers, including Johnson Controls, Children’s Hospital, Brookdale Senior Living, and Konecranes bringing a total of over 1,850 jobs to the West Allis area, the potential for a multi-family development at the site is likely. “After our preliminary market study, our research predicts there will be an over 240 housing unit loss in a five mile radius from the site in the next few years, and with this huge influx of jobs, this area will be in serious need of quality housing,” said Boerke Company Principal Jack Price, who is marketing both sites with a mix of industrial and investment brokerage teams at The Boerke Company. “Having a proactive CDA, like what we have here in West Allis, that is open to providing incentives for high caliber taxable projects at both of these sites is huge for developers, and if the project is deemed significant for the neighborhood, the buyer could see millions of dollars in incentives.”

The Juneau Highlands Development, which is located a few blocks south of the Six Points Crossing site, is pad ready for up to a 150,000 square-foot industrial or manufacturing building. The site has a retention pond, access to rail, and is located in a TIF district. “When we secured the listing agreement from the West Allis CDA, our industrial team immediately saw great potential for this site because of its central location and access to a strong workforce in the surrounding area,” said Patrick Dedering, who is part of the Boerke team marketing the Juneau Highlands Site. “It is rare that a build-to-suit site in a great location with incentives like this one is on the market for long, so we expect buyers and developers to line up quickly for it.”

The two locations were being marketed internally by representatives at the West Allis CDA, but they looked to get professional commercial real estate representation for the two sites this summer. “The CDA was looking for a commercial real estate firm that could take the two sites to any and all interested parties, whether they would be industrial, multi-family, retail, or investment users”, said Boerke Company Principal

Terry McMahon, one of the listing agents on the two sites. “In the end, we were chosen to market the properties because we are one of a few firms in the area that has full-fledged industrial, retail, office, and investment teams, which will really help us drive interest from all segments to these two sites.”
