Ground has Broken on Industrial Spec in Milwaukee

Morgan /Harbour Construction announces the firm has been selected to build a 150,000 SF speculative industrial facility for Scannell Properties. Located on Milwaukee’s northwest side on a 12.5-acre parcel at 12111 & 12255 W. Carmen Avenue, the speculative building will feature 15 exterior docks with 16 knock-out panels for future docks, and 22 trailer stalls with dolly pads.

Scannell Properties, represented by Development Associate Kip Wanser, selected Morgan/Harbour to execute the project. The West Carmen Avenue facility will offer tenants convenient access to Interstates 41/45, General Mitchell International Airport, and Milwaukee’s full transit offerings.

The Morgan / Harbour construction team includes Greg Bugbee, VP as Project Executive, Eric Schmidt as Senior Project Manager, and Jason Norton as Superintendent. Paul Woody Architect, Inc. of Charlotte, North Carolina is providing architectural design services. Civil engineering design is by Pinnacle Engineering Group. The Boerke Company, based in Milwaukee and represented by Jeff Hoffman, Principal/Industrial Services, will market the multi-tenant development for lease on behalf of Scannell Properties.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held on May 1st. Completion of the new speculative warehouse is scheduled for Fall 2019.

“We are excited to be selected by Scannell to play a role in the robust economic growth and expansion throughout Southeast Wisconsin,” said Ben Warriner, Executive Vice President and Partner of Morgan/Harbour. “Construction of the Carmen Avenue industrial development is a dynamic project for our Wisconsin office and builds on our commitment to provide exceptional construction services in Southeast Wisconsin.”
