CBRE to Market Proposed Crow Holdings Development at Milwaukee Airport

CBRE will handle a new leasing assignment on behalf of Crow Holdings for the South Cargo Logistics Hub at Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport, a proposed on-tarmac air cargo facility totaling 288,000 square feet. CBRE’s David Prell and Scott Furmanski will market the redevelopment on behalf of Crow Holdings. 

The site was home to the 440th Air Reserve Base from the 1950s until July of 2010 when it was formally deeded back to the County upon the base’s closure by the Department of Defense. The site has been available for large scale commercial development but has remained physically unchanged since then. 

“This rare opportunity to occupy a Class-A, on-airfield product at a major airport will stand out to a great deal of potential tenants,” said Prell. “Being able to meet the needs of modern users will put a new spotlight on the Airport and the strategic advantages it presents.”
