Freshwater Fix


The Freshwater Fix building, located at 205 S. 2nd Street in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is a 7,000 square foot former industrial manufacturing building repurposed for retail development in 2015. The building was historically owned by a tannery and has been cleaned-up as part of the redevelopment process. The building is located at a high traffic intersection in the rapidly redeveloping downtown neighborhood of Historic Walker’s Point, just south of Milwaukee’s city center. Within the past five years, nearly $100 million in commercial, retail and residential developments have been proposed, initiated or completed in the area.

To realize her vision for the Freshwater Fix Building, developer Juli Kaufmann of Fix Development brought together a number of individual local investors from outside of Fund Milwaukee as well as a number of Fund Milwaukee members by offering a lower investment level that was more accessible than typical real estate deals. Each now owns a percentage of the building.
