According to an independent assessment by the Town of Brookfield, the development is expected to generate more than $8 million in annual sales tax revenue. The development and land improvements are also expected to create approximately $187 million in new tax revenue.

Anchored by Wisconsin’s first Von Maur department store, other retail tenants will include a mix of men’s, women’s and children’s fashion and accessories, specialty retailers, home goods, and more. The development will also feature luxury apartment.
