TOWN OF BROOKFIELD - More details for an approximately 140,000-square-foot Von Maur department store will be discussed during the Architectural Control committee meeting Wednesday.

Von Maur will be the anchor for the $200 million, 750,000-square-foot lifestyle center called The Corners under construction near Bluemound and Barker roads. Initial work already begun at the site includes grading and preparation for an underground parking garage. The center is anticipated to open in fall 2016.

During Wednesday’s 6 p.m. meeting, there may be preliminary approval of the two-level Von Maur suite at The Corners, as well as a recommendation for preliminary approval for the commercial and residential components of The Corners, although Development Services Administrator Gary Lake said he had not received documents for the latter item by Monday morning.

Submitted renderings for Von Maur include exterior perspectives, as well as entrances and the building at night. Also included are some sample interior photos and an interior layout plan.

The Corners will contain 400,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space and 235 luxury apartments that will be managed by Milwaukee-based Mandel Group. A few months ago, Milwaukee-based Marcus Corporation entered a joint venture agreement with IM Properties and Bradford Real Estate to lead the project. IM Properties and Bradford serve as the managing member in the joint venture and The Marcus Corporation will remain a partner in the joint venture.

The Architecture Control meeting will be held at Town Hall, 645 N. Janacek Road.
