Late this past summer The Milwaukee Business Journal reported that Bear Development out of Kenosha wanted to discuss with Franklin officials their plans to develop land they purchased at Loomis and Ryan roads. Bear Development is a quality, up and coming mover and shaker in the development world. The company does very, very good work.
Bear Development approached the city on this very same project in 2014, but the city, surprise, surprise, torpedoed it, and it died. It seemed months ago that the developed was back. However I’m told there’s been movement since the Business Journal article. Another source tells me the developer is giving more attention to other projects, including one planned in St. Francis.
