A judge on Tuesday gave his approval to a lawsuit filed by a parks-advocacy group that aims to stop for good the delayed construction of former President Barack Obama's proposed $500 million presidential center in a Chicago park beside Lake Michigan.
Members of a parks advocacy group say they will not appeal a recent court decision allowing the proposed Couture development to proceed at Milwaukee's Downtown Transit Center site.
A court ruling Friday cleared the way for the Couture development along Milwaukee's lakefront, as well as the construction of a station for the lakefront line for the city's long-planned streetcar.
Milwaukee County has sued Preserve Our Parks, a parks advocacy group, over the group's actions that it claims have hindered the county's ability to sell land on Milwaukee's lakefront for a new residential development known as the Couture.
Milwaukee County wants the state Supreme Court to weigh in on its proposed sale of land for The Couture high-rise development, but the court first has to determine if it has jurisdiction over the matter.
Following the recommendation of an economic development committee Monday, the sale of the O’Donnell Park parking structure and related land to Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. now depends on the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors.
The state Senate voted 24-9 across party lines Tuesday in favor of a bill that would establish Lake Michigan’s shoreline in Milwaukee and pave the way for the high-rise Couture project.
The state Assembly approved legislation Thursday that would establish Lake Michigan’s shoreline in Milwaukee and pave the way for the high-rise Couture project.
A day after a companion bill won approval from an Assembly committee, Senate lawmakers passed legislation Wednesday that would establish Lake Michigan’s shoreline in Milwaukee and pave the way for The Couture.
Critics and supporters of The Couture development agreed Wednesday that the proposed site of the Milwaukee project once was underwater.
A lawsuit over property rights at the proposed site of The Couture high-rise in downtown Milwaukee received its first approval Thursday.
Two state lawmakers began seeking sponsors Thursday for a bill that would reassert that the proposed downtown Milwaukee site for The Couture high-rise building is available for private development.
