Concert venue, hotel, soccer stadium planned for downtown Milwaukee

A new concert venue, along with a hotel and professional soccer stadium, are planned for downtown Milwaukee’s west side — a project its backers say will create a new entertainment district and transform a largely dead site.

The mixed-use development is to be built on an 11-acre site that includes the former Ramada Hotel, 633 W. Michigan St., according to a Friday announcement from Bear Development LLC and Kacmarcik Enterprises LLC.

The project is scheduled to break ground by early fall, with the stadium and entertainment venue projected to open in spring 2024. The project will also include 99 apartments as well as a street-level restaurant and retail space.

The 8,000-seat soccer stadium is to host a professional soccer team that Kacmarcik Enterprises owner Jim Kacmarcik plans to bring to Milwaukee.
