Angelic Bakehouse Plans Move to Cudahy; Pabst District Earns Rare LEED Platinum Award
Angelic Bakehouse Inc. is planning to move from Waukesha this summer to a $3.4 million, 22,000-square-foot office and production facility in Cudahy, BizTimes Milwaukee reports.
Located on Layton Ave., Angelic’s new facilities will be the former site of the Iceport, a planned multiple-rink project. Construction is expected to start in April and be completed by August. Executive vice president James Marino told BizTimes Milwaukee that Angelic intends to expand from 29 to 100 employees over the next three years.
The 40-year-old bakery—known until recently as Cybros The Sprouted Bakehouse—considered building the new facility in Milwaukee and Menomonee Falls. Angelic decided that Cudahy offers better access to Chicago and points east, as well as proximity to other food manufacturers. The city’s Community Development Authority is expected to review Angelic’s development proposal later this month.
In other development news, JSOnline reports that the Pabst Brewing Co. redevelopment project in Downtown Milwaukee has received LEED platinum designation from the U.S. Green Building Council.
The 20-acre site can now claim to be one of the greenest development clusters in the world. USGBC has awarded its LEED Platinum designation to only three neighborhoods in the United States and five worldwide. On Feb. 27, Mayor Tom Barrett accepted the award during a presentation held at the Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health.
The Pabst redevelopment district includes the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Zilber School of Public Health, Cardinal Stritch University’s College of Education and Leadership, the Blue Ribbon Brewery Lofts apartment building, the Best Place pub, Brewery Point senior housing, office buildings, a parking garage, as well as a public park. The conversion of the former Pabst brew house to the Brew House Inn & Suites, an extended-stay property, is expected to be complete in April.
