Program: Environmentally-sensitive city development master plan and design guidelines
Milwaukee County Grounds Master Plan
Highly valued for its prime location and natural beauty, the County Grounds property is one of the last major undeveloped tracts of land in metropolitan Milwaukee. TKWA was hired to lead a multi-disciplinary design team to create a development plan that would be economically viable, yet sensitive to the environmental impact of development. Maintaining open spaces and preserving a cluster of existing historic Eschweiler buildings on the property were also priorities.
The goal of the master plan and design guidelines was to create a user-friendly, useful, and implementable resource guide that balances environmental, aesthetic, and cost considerations to encourage quality mixed-use development consistent with the needs of the community and the marketplace.
