Former Sweet Water Organics in Bay View could become $40 million, 307-unit apartment complex

BAY VIEW (WITI) -- The Bay View site of the former Sweet Water Organics is being looked at for a possible $40 million, 307-unit apartment complex, according to Milwaukee Alderman Tony Zielinski.

A community meeting on the proposed project hosted by Alderman Zielinski will be held on Monday, March 16th at 6:00 p.m. at the South Shore Park pavilion -- 2900 S. Shore Dr.

“This is a significant development proposal for Bay View, where excellent projects of all sizes are regularly coming forward and at a pace that is moving Bay View forward at breakneck speed,” Alderman Zielinski said.

The project would require a zoning change, and the development would encompass two parcels of land, 2151 S. Robinson Ave. and 2181 S. Robinson Ave.

Steve Lindner, the owner of the property, said Alderman Zielinski has been a helpful resource with the proposal.

“I really appreciate Alderman Zielinski’s commitment to helping me find a good, productive use of the property,” Mr. Lindner said. “Alderman Zielinski’s been in my corner from the start and it has really made a positive difference."
