WEC Interested in Former Coke Plant Property

WEC Energy may buy a 46-acre former Solvay Coke property in Milwaukee. After an environmental clean-up effort, the site could be an important part of the harbor area’s redevelopment.

The contaminated property has frontage on the Kinnickinnic River and Milwaukee’s inner harbor south of Greenfield Avenue. Although contaminated from past years of industrial use, the property’s size, water frontage and location south of downtown has made Solvay Coke a perennial subject of redevelopment talks. Former industrial buildings were torn down earlier this summer.

The property has been owned by Golden Marina Causeway LLC, of Illinois, which has been going through an ongoing bankruptcy case.
