Glendale gets grant to redevelop former site of Glendale Rail Yard
GLENDALE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The City of Glendale is receiving a $435,000 state grant to help redevelop the former site of the Glendale Rail Yard.
The Idle Sites Redevelopment Grant from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation will support the Glendale Yard Master Development Plan, a two-phase real estate strategy that will construct multiple industrial and flex-space buildings totaling over 375,000 square feet along the I-43 corridor.
The grant will be used for phase one of the project which will include the construction of a 60,000-square-foot flex-space building as well as a public street. City officials say the construction of a road will be a critical element in unlocking the development value of the parcel.
Construction began in March and is expected to be completed late next year.
“This project will see the construction of new industrial and office spaces which will play a key role in jump-starting redevelopment efforts in Glendale,” said Mark R. Hogan, secretary and CEO of WEDC.
