AUGUST PROGRAM: LEED-ND PLATINUM NEIGHBORHOOD TOUR
For more than 150 years, the Pabst Brewery was a main focal point of downtown Milwaukee. The brewery closed its doors in 1996, and in 2006, the brewery complex was purchased by Joseph Zilber’s investment group to create The Brewery, a multi-use development. We will have a guided walking tour of the The Brewery development by members of the Zilber Group team who developed the project. The Zilber Group went to great lengths to incorporate a wide range of sustainable strategies into the construction and development process, resulting in a LEED-ND Platinum certification, making it one of the greenest neighborhood developments in the US. The tour will begin and end at the brand new Hotel/Restaurant “The Brewhouse Inn and Suites,” one of the most historic buildings of The “Brewery” development
TOUR LOCATION: The Brewhouse Inn and Suites located at 1215 N 10th St, Milwaukee, WI 53205 http://www.brewhousesuites.com/ NOTE THIS IS NOT PABST BEST PLACE
PARKING: There is free one -hour street parking through 9pm in front the building on Juneau Avenue. Alternatively, the parking structure across the street offers parking at $0.75/hour. There is also valet parking.
SPEAKER: Dan McCarthy, Director of Urban Development of the Zilber Group (http://www.zilber.com ) and members of his team will be conducting a walking tour of The “Brewery,” one of only five platinum level LEED-ND (Neighborhood Development) in the world.
