WAUWATOSA — The terms of a development agreement allowing for the creation of seven development pad sites that can accommodate up to 750 additional residential units and 360,000 square feet of corporate space has been approved by the city of Wauwatosa.

HSA Commercial Real Estate, a Chicago-based full-service real estate firm, plans to demolish existing warehouse building on the site near Highway 41/45 and Burleigh Street.

The Mayfair Collection is a 69-acre mixed-use project that includes 500,000 square feet of retail space anchored by Whole Foods Market and Nordstrom Rack, as well as a Hilton Homewood Suites and a 269-unit luxury apartment building called Synergy at The Mayfair Collection.

“We have always shared a vision with the city of Wauwatosa to transform the ‘Burleigh Triangle’ from an underutilized warehouse complex into a vibrant, dense and walkable mixed-use community,” said Tim Blum, executive vice president with HSA Commercial Real Estate, in a statement. “With the support of city leadership and staff, we’ve gone a long way in terms of achieving that vision through the opening of the initial retail, hospitality and apartment components; but this development agreement offers the roadmap to completely fulfill that common goal over the next several years.”

The terms of the agreement between Wauwatosa and HSA Commercial Real Estate provide for the demolition and environmental remediation of the remaining warehouse buildings on the interior of the 69-acre site as well as the extension of roads and infrastructure necessary to support the development of future residential and office buildings.

“The Mayfair Collection development in Wauwatosa has been very successful,” said Wauwatosa Mayor Kathleen Ehley in a statement.

“We are pleased to support the future expansion of this project and add more residents and employees to one of our most vibrant mixed-use developments,” Ehley said.

Demolition and site work are scheduled to begin this summer, with the pad-ready development sites available as soon as spring 2020.
