The development process started with a gas station in foreclosure on a piece of land in two municipalities with environmental challenges in the worst economic conditions in generations, and the process has ended with a terrific retail and residential community. In between were lots of little steps, and several enormous leaps. With unprecedented cooperation between Whitefish Bay and Shorewood, and a truly dynamic public/private partnership between the developer and Shorewood, the team has produced an award-winning mixed-use community of the highest value.    

GREEN IS GOOD
The WiRED team is dedicated to sustainable development. Located in a truly walkable community, on a bus line and on a formerly contaminated site, The Cornerstone meets the highest objectives for re-use of urban sites. We followed the most stringent standards in decommissioning and remediating the gas station and the contamination from the former car dealership on the site.

Engberg Anderson Design Partnership is one of Milwaukee’s leading green design architectural firms. Together, we’ve designed and developed a building that anticipates how you live while providing for how we all should live. At The Cornerstone we implemented meaningful sustainable design elements including:

  • Highly efficient heating and cooling systems
  • Energy efficient lighting
  • Thermally glazed windows
  • Use of recyclable and renewable construction materials
  • Bamboo flooring
  • Energy efficient stainless steel appliances
