Here’s yet another possible development scenario for Milwaukee Avenue (click on image for slightly larger and clearer view).
Like the others, I’d like to hear what you think of its potential if it were to replace an empty lot or an ugly, historically insignificant building.
As with Scenario 1 and Scenario 2, Milwaukee Avenue is on the right. Again, there is an accessible green roof proposed, and there is a park proposed at the intersection with the side street to the left, this time in the form of a skate park. Surface level parking is proposed in the rear half of the building under the upper levels of the building.
Could you see this type of building along Milwaukee Avenue? Or can you think of something more appropriate? What’s good about it? How would you improve on it?
What uses would you like to see in such a building: residential? retail? office? institutional?
Is a skate park appropropriate along Milwaukee Avenue?
