Join us on January 17th from 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM for the FINAL Mobile Design Box Gallery Night at our current location in the Near West Side’s Concordia Neighborhood

See how SARUP students are impacting our neighborhoods and envisioning a future for transforming major sites in the City. Community Design Solutions (CDS) engages Milwaukee citizens and organizations as they design new community parks, civic gathering places, building enhancements, and adaptive reuse concepts for vacant buildings. Renderings of future projects, and photos of implemented ideas will be on display. You can also explore visions for leveraging the arena investment, transforming parking structures and vacant parcels long Michigan and Clybourn Avenues, and the renaissance future in the Harbor District. The Urban Design & Development Studio creates visions for how areas of downtown can be reinvented as the next vibrant destination in the City.

Near West Side Partners will be exhibiting “The Story of a Neighborhood” a collection of 7 areas with a rich past and an optimistic future and home to the Ambassador Hotel and Tower Theater. Featuring images from the 1920s to the present, the exhibition shows the rise, decline, and revival of the area.
