TOWN OF BROOKFIELD Demolition starts on the former Menards on Bluemound Road on Friday afternoon to make room for The Corners of Brookfield retail and residential development.

The $200 million, 750,000-square-foot lifestyle center will be anchored by a Von Maur department store and have luxury apartments, in addition to underground parking and restaurants. After the buildings are demolished at the site of the center, major excavation work will begin with the center anticipated to open fall 2016.

The Town of Brookfield created a tax incremental financing district for the development. The Town of Brookfield Joint Review Board will meet 4 p.m. Monday at Town Hall, 645 N. Janacek Road, to review a status of the project and the revised terms of the development agreement.
