Located 1.5 Miles southwest of downtown, Historic Mitchell Street has a long history of being one of Milwaukee’s premier commercial corridors. With easy access from the highway and surrounding neighborhoods, the corridor offers the potential as a destination for the city as a whole. CDS worked with the Historic Mitchell Street BID and proposed improvements along the corridor that would draw business owners back to the area. After extensive site analysis, CDS proposed designs that include pedestrian connections between the street and parking lots behind buildings, incorporating informational signage and art as well as outdoor dining for a local restaurant.
