Crews formally broke ground on Tuesday on the Couture high-rise project, a 44-story tower that will eventually overlook Lake Michigan in downtown Milwaukee after being in the works for nearly a decade.
Developer Rick Barrett said Friday that he’s secured financing needed to advance the $122 million Couture high-rise on Milwaukee’s lakefront, a step that could signal the start of construction after years of delays.
Could Milwaukee' long-delayed Couture project finally be moving forward? According to a talk radio host, the project has the cash it needs to get out of the ground. The project's developer, however, isn't saying either way.
Shortly before a panel of Milwaukee officials recommended approval for detailed plans for the 44-story Couture apartment and retail tower, the developer behind the project said he plans to name a general contractor within the next few weeks.
