Irgens plans building for last parcel at The Corridor

Brookfield officials will consider Irgens’ request to approve plans for a nearly 22,000 SF retail and medical building on the last available parcel at The Corridor.

Irgens wants to build an approximately 21,500 SF rentable, multi-tenant retail center over a vacant lot at 350 Discovery Drive, Rob Oldenburg, senior vice president of development, said in a letter to Brookfield staff. The developer requested the city amend The Corridor’s planned development district (PDD) to allow an offset for a lot to change from 10 to 5 feet along Swanson Elementary School.

Swanson officials wanted a more secure perimeter between the elementary school and the development, Martin Castro, principal of Swanson Elementary School, wrote in a letter. He added the Elmbrook School District supported the project and wanted to prioritize student safety.

The developer will install new landscaping near the fencing, trees and bushes that buffer Swanson from the parcel, Oldenburg said. Changing the PDD was “critical” because modifying the building footprint parking design, or both without the offset reduction would have adverse effects on leasing efforts, he added.
