MILWAUKEE – The following statement was issued today by Rick Barrett, Founder of Barrett Visionary Development:

As a Milwaukee native, it is my commitment to continue Barrett Visionary Development’s track record of bringing iconic, fresh new developments to Milwaukee’s skyline. We look forward to continuing that commitment with the proposed Couture development at the Downtown Transit Center site.

We appreciate the County Board’s strong show of support today in unanimously moving the Couture forward. We look forward to entering negotiations with the County so we can make this exciting project a reality for Milwaukee County.

It has been my pleasure to work together with both the County Executive and County Board throughout this process. Working together, we will bring up to 4,400 new jobs to Milwaukee, help transform our lakefront, and generate an estimated $2.4 million in annual property tax revenues.
