SOLVAY COKE SITE TO BE READY FOR REDEVELOPMENT IN 2019

We Energies expects to have the large Solvay Coke property in Milwaukee’s Harbor District cleaned and ready for a possible industrial redevelopment in 2019. The 46-acre waterfront property is the largest piece in an envisioned revitalization of Milwaukee’s entire inner harbor area south of the 3rd Ward. Businesses and the city are pushing to make the inner harbor Milwaukee’s next Menomonee Valley, transforming its underused industrial land with new development over several years.

The Harbor District will release its proposed long-range plan for the area, which encourages new public spaces, offices, manufacturing facilities and housing. The area has a history of heavy industrial uses stretching back to the late 1800s. It has left the land contaminated and vacant for years. We Energies bought Solvay Coke in May.
