This week on Urban Spelunking, we’re (somewhat) back out in the real world, talking about a massive development coming to the Harbor District in Milwaukee.

Mandel Group is working transform the site of a former grain silo along the Milwaukee River into a sprawling four-building mixed development. The $150 million project includes new construction to be used for housing, retail and a hotel on South Water Street, south of Pittsburgh Avenue.

But first, the old grain silo (and other buildings around it) needs to come down, a massive undertaking given its sturdy, cement construction. OnMilwaukee’s Bobby Tanzilo visited the site of The Harbor Yards to get one last look at the silo before it’s gone forever.

Listen to this week’s podcast below, and be sure to read the complete story at OnMilwaukee.
