Concordia 27 Ribbon Cutting

June 26, 2024

A milestone event of Greenfire’s construction management at Concordia 27 included the ribbon cutting celebration. Located on Milwaukee’s Near West Side on the corner of 27th and Wells St, Concordia 27 is the transformation of a once vacant yet historic building into a bustling community and wellness hub, as well as the future home of affordable apartments. Developer, Rick Wiegand enlisted the services of Quorum Architects to redesign the building, and Greenfire to head up the construction efforts.

The concept and redevelopment of the site was truly a collaborative effort, which garnered support from many local organizations, businesses, as well as local, state, and federal bodies. Many of the representatives who helped in these efforts were present at the ribbon cutting, including U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin and Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley, as well as Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson.

Concordia 27 will function as the new headquarters for Near West Side Partners, a non-profit with aims to revitalize the Near West Side of Milwaukee. NWSP’s executive director Linsey St. Arnold Bell was a key figure in the project’s development, and applauded all parties involved to make the project a reality. Concordia 27 will serve as a hub of community resources for local entrepreneurs, retail and café space, gathering and meeting spaces, as well as the home of other local organizations. The development’s first floor is home to NWSP’s offices, the Milwaukee Centers for Independence’s training center and meal prep kitchen, Fruition MKE’s coworking, makerspace and café, and SWIM (Scaling Wellness in Milwaukee) a non-profit resource and therapy center that addresses trauma and provides wellness services.

As a subsidiary of Potawatomi Ventures, which is a member of Near West Side Partners, Greenfire is proud to see the culmination of our construction efforts, and the diligence of all parties to make Concordia 27 possible. The benefits that the project will provide to the community will have a ripple effect through Milwaukee’s Near West Side and beyond.
