A close-in suburb of Milwaukee, the community of Glendale, WI has a population of nearly 13,000. Unlike other Milwaukee north shore suburbs, Glendale has a mix of industry and commercial uses in addition to residential areas. The southern areas of the city are comprised of industrial and higher density residential, while northern Glendale features more single family residential.

In recent years, Glendale has begun an ambitious campaign to attract business and grow its population. Major roads have undergone massive streetscaping projects, Bayshore Town Center has undergone a multimillion-dollar renovation and rebirth, and the Glendale Business Park continues to welcome high tech clients. Notable companies that call Glendale home include WH Brady, Florsheim Shoes, Johnson Controls, Sprecher Brewery and Kopps Frozen Custard, among others. In addition to Bayshore Town Center, the Port Washington Road sub-market includes a dynamic combination of local retail and office users, as well as Cardinal Stritch University located less than a mile north of the property.

Commenting on the sale, Joel Schneider, Senior Vice President of Hilco Real Estate, said, "The true opportunity lies in the fact that this asset is directly in the path of area development. Not only has Bayshore Town Center become a shopping destination and economic driver for the entire Milwaukee metro since its renovation, but now the City of Milwaukee has proposed widening I-43 to accommodate increased traffic. This property stands to benefit greatly from these neighboring investments. This property's prominent location with generous presentation and visibility from I-43 is unmatched."

Mr. Schneider added, "As such, we expect this auction to attract active interest from a broad spectrum of real estate investors, developers and regional end users looking to ride the wave of development sweeping over this area."
