Lakefront Development Forum-June 26, 2012
Well over 200 were in attendance for the Lakefront Development Forum co-hosted by NAIOP Wisconsin and CARW. Attendees heard from moderator Gary Grunau of the Grucon Group, Greg Uhen of Eppstein Uhen Architects, Brian Taffora of the Milwaukee Economic Development Committee, Bill Bonifas of CB Richard Ellis and Joe Ullrich of US Bank. The guest speakers discussed a bit of history of Milwaukee’s Lakefront followed by details of the current Lakefront Development Plan. Taffora was able to update the group on the progress that the City and County have made since the Plan was approved in November of 2011. Attendees also left with some excellent visions for the future of the Lakefront.
