TOWN OF BROOKFIELD ó A prime piece of land from the future The Corners project on Bluemound Road was sold Tuesday to Poplar Creek Club, LLC.

The 7.5 acres of land off of Bluemound and Jennifer Drive was purchased for $2,050,000, according to state records. The seller was S&T North Shore LLC, a Brookfield company with Jeanne Safro as the sellerís agent. Poplar Creek Club is based in Hales Corners.

In January, Wimmer Communities approached the town about building a mixed-use development on the 7.5 acres of vacant land along Jennifer Drive, west of Poplar Creek and north of Bluemound Road. The development would be called Poplar Creek Club and would have views of the natural corridor surrounding Poplar Creek, according to a letter sent by Wimmer Communities President Mark Wimmer to the town in January. The plan called for a neighborhood retail center, 117 residential multi-family residences with three elevator-accessible buildings and a clubhouse. Access would be via private roadway intersecting both Bluemound and Barker roads at signalized intersections, according to the letter.
