County Board committee approves selling City Campus property to Ambassador Hotel owner

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- A Milwaukee County Board committee on Monday, December 8th approved selling the City Campus property to the owner of the Ambassador Hotel in Milwaukee.

Milwaukee County employees are moving out of the three-building complex on North 27th and Wells.

The move will help the county cut down on maintenance costs.

Rick Wiegand, the Ambassador Hotel's owner plans to demolish the nine-story building on the property and redevelop the other two buildings for office and retail use.

The sale proposal will go to the full Milwaukee County Board later this month.
