Initial lineup of tenants for "The Corners" announced

MILWAUKEE -- (WITI)-- The Marcus Corporation on Wednesday, December 4th announced an initial line-up of tenants opening in The Corners of Brookfield, the open-air, town-center-style development in the Town of Brookfield.

The mixed-use 460,000 square-foot development will be anchored by Wisconsin’s first Von Maur department store.

The announcement followed a vote by the Town of Brookfield Board approving the Development Agreement between the Town and The Marcus Corporation, which provides for the tax incremental financing for the project.

“The Corners is the Wisconsin choice for several popular, nationally-known, first-to-market retailers and restaurants,” said Katie Falvey, director of real estate for The Marcus Corporation. “In addition to the national tenants, many of whom have been looking for a unique project in order to make their entrance into Wisconsin, our goal from day one has been to also incorporate local flavor into an eclectic mix of fashion, dining, and vibrant living. The Corners’ location in the Town of Brookfield on I-94 and Bluemound Roads – a first-tier suburban redevelopment – will allow us to create a distinctive, new regional destination.”

Tenants opening in The Corners include:

                      As previously announced, Davenport, Iowa-based Von Maur, the upscale department store chain, will open its first store in Wisconsin at The Corners.

                      The 140,000 square-foot store will anchor the mixed-use development and will be the sought-after fashion department store destination in southeastern Wisconsin.

                      Von Maur has grown to a 27-location chain, with stores in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska and Ohio; and coming soon to Alabama and New York.

                      Priding itself on a wide selection of brand-name merchandise, open and attractive store design and excellent customer service, Von Maur will bring a very special shopping experience to The Corners.

                      “As evident from this initial mix of restaurants and retailers opening in The Corners, the project is appealing to ‘best-in-class’ operators, from coffee and special occasion dining, to upscale fashion, and everything in between,” said Falvey.

                      Falvey noted the company is in advanced negotiations with more than two dozen additional leading brands, with further announcements to come.
