Medical office building to fill in The Corridor


City of Brookfield – The pieces of The Corridor keep coming together.


Developer Irgens’ plans for a medical office building that would be built near the center of the 66-acre site have been given the go-ahead.


The structure would stand west of Discovery Drive, north of the previously-approved Hilton Garden Inn and south of Dick’s Sporting Goods.


The building would measure two stories and 50,000 square feet. Irgens said that they are having discussions with several tenants but that they are unable to announce anything at this time.


As part of Irgens’ request for the medical office building, a portion of the center area of The Corridor would be split into three separate lots. As such, city of Brookfield director of community development Dan Ertl said that a potential conference center at The Corridor is now extremely unlikely.


“We would’ve needed more land than was shown. Step by step we’re probably coming to the conclusion that (a conference center) is not going to occur at The Corridor,” Ertl said.


One of the original public benefits related to the city granting Irgens’ request for tax incremental financing (TIF) assistance on The Corridor was the exploration of a 35,000-square-foot conference center with an 18,000-square-foot ballroom on the site near or attached to the Hilton Garden Inn.
