The Burleigh Street Community Development Corporation (BSCDC) will hold a Commercial Property Showcase on Friday, May 16th from 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Several premier properties on the 5300 block of west Burleigh Street will be open for tours.
Interested buyers, renters, developers and their brokers are invited to view properties for sale and lease. BSCDC is teaming up with real estate and property management representatives from NAI MLG Commercial, Siegel-Gallagher, Sandor Development, and AASAP Management for their second annual property showcase.
Individuals from traditional and non-traditional lending partners will be available at the event to explain incentives, services and funding opportunities available. These partners include: Legacy Redevelopment Corporation, US Bank, Milwaukee Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), Wisconsin Women’s Business Initiative Corporation (WWBIC), African American Chamber of Commerce (AACC), Bank Mutual, Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA), the Small Business Administration (SBA), Educators Credit Union and Seaway Bank and Trust.
“We’re excited to build on last year’s event. This is a great opportunity for professionals and retailers to see some available office and storefront space in which they can grow their business right here in the city,” said Renée Lindner, BSCDC’s Outreach Manager. “One of our goals is to close deals.”
Last year’s showcase helped at least one buyer find the property that will soon house a new business on Burleigh Street. The commercial property showcase is one of many BSCDC events that support urban commercial corridor revitalization efforts.
Beginning at 12:30 p.m. on May 16, this event is open to the general public. Anyone interested in attending should contact Renée Lindner at the phone number or email address listed above.
