Sherman Phoenix building opening Friday

NOW: Sherman Phoenix building opening Friday

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- It was more than two years ago when the BMO Harris Bank branch was destroyed in the Sherman Park unrest following the fatal shooting of Sylville Smith. 

Now, a new building is preparing to open in its place. 

For many in the Sherman Park neighborhood, the grand opening of a new community center is much more than a simple event. It's the rebirth of a neighborhood. 

The Sherman Phoenix building will have its grand opening Friday. It will be used as a community-inspired building where anyone is welcome, housing art exhibits, film showings, and more. 

The grand opening event for the Sherman Phoenix is Friday night from 5:00-8:00 p.m.
