The park land is a former dumping site, but is the onlyavailable land for industrial development, says Peter Ginn,regional director for the trust's Milwaukee region. "The troublewith Waukesha County is that there's been very decent growth. Anyland that's become available for development has been taken foroffice, retail, residential and medical, because industrial can'tpay as much. There just hasn't been a lot of big sites forindustrial," he tells GlobeSt.com. The developer was able to get aTIF district for the property to help with infrastructure andpollution clean up, he says.

Construction will start on the $15-million, cross-dockedQuad/Graphics building in the fall, with completion expected in thefirst half of 2009, Ginn says. "The company is one of the top threeprinters in the US, and its competitor Quebecor just declaredbankruptcy, so this project, with the company expecting morebusiness, went from 300,000 sf to almost 400,000 sf almostovernight," he says.
