Wauwatosa looks at major redevelopment along Mayfair Road

EXCERPTS FROM BIZTIMES.COM, MILWAUKEE: The city of Wauwatosa is considering redeveloping more than 100 acres of its former landfill site along Mayfair Road into a mixed-use development that could include residential, light manufacturing and commercial space.

A 20-acre portion of the site, commonly referred to as Mt. Tosa, will be the first area studied to see if development can occur, said Paulette Enders, director of development for the city.  

“While there are challenges and limitations on the site, redevelopment is possible with proper planning and engineering controls,” according to city documents. 

The 100-acre site has been eyed by city officials since 2015, when they adopted a redevelopment plan for the Mayfair Road Corridor by Madison-based Vandewalle & Associates.

The plan recommends medium to high density commercial, residential and industrial development.

“The city’s DPW site on Walnut Road and the vacant shipping facility on 113th Street are priorities in the district because of their shovel-readiness for redevelopment and/or reuse for light industrial and clean manufacturing uses, with high visibility and easy truck access to Mayfair Road, Watertown Plank Road, and Highway 45,” the study said.

According to the Vandewalle plan, highest and best use for the site would be to extend W. Walnut Road west though the center of the 100-acre parcel to Mayfair Road.
