Milwaukee Ballet's 3rd Ward center gets approval

Thursday, September 14, 2017   (0 Comments)

Milwaukee Ballet received an approval by the Historic Third Ward’s Architectural Review Board for for its new facility in the downtown Milwaukee neighborhood. The two-story, 52,000-square-foot facility at 132 N. Jackson St. will include two large rehearsal halls for the ballet’s main dance company, multiple classrooms for children and adults, and five other rehearsal studios for children. The all-brick building will also have a community component, with a two-story public atrium that includes a gift shop and two professional-sized stages that could be opened up for the public to view rehearsals. 

In December, members of the Italian Community Center voted to sell 1.8 acres in the southwest corner of the ICC’s parking lot to the Milwaukee Ballet Co. The ballet will purchase the site for $2.4 million. Catalyst Construction will manage construction. The ballet’s project is the first time the ICC has allowed development on its property, despite considering several other plans.
