ThriveOn Collaboration Construction Updates

Milwaukee, Wis., November 10, 2021 - We wanted to provide an update regarding the ThriveOn Collaboration construction at the former Gimbels-Schuster’s building on North Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Milwaukee. The final permitting process is in place; however, the ongoing challenges of the pandemic have pushed the construction timeline from fall 2021 to winter.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the construction industry, and this project is seeing those effects. While this is an unanticipated and temporary delay for ThriveOn King, we are working through details to get every aspect of construction ready to fully proceed this winter.

In the meantime, we continue to engage neighborhood residents in the planning processes regarding the use and development of the space and as well as programming. Community input is a critical piece in our work in all phases of the development, and especially so as challenges arise along the way.

We are committed to building an equitable, healthy, and thriving Milwaukee for all and every step of the way, however big or small, the ThriveOn Collaboration’s programs and investments support this vision. As always, we are deeply appreciative of your continued support for this important Collaboration.
