  9. 9. Catalyst theory: Case study of Milwaukee The story of catalytic redevelopment in Milwaukee begins with a 1973 study commissioned by the Greater Milwaukee Committee. It offereda vision for a new downtown, which in turn could change attitudes. The study recommended the formation of a development corporation and the creation of a retail core with related uses. Studies also indicated that Milwaukee needed risk capital for renewal, the Milwaukee Redevelopment Corporation (MRC) was formed in 1973 as a limited-profit, blue-chip grouping of large firms. Conceived by the MRC and the city in 1976, the Grand Avenue concept was reviewed in 1977, and negotiations with a developer, the Rouse Company, began in 1978. Private investment amounted to $18 million, with the Rouse Company contributing $19.5 million. The $39 million investment of the city of Milwaukee took the form of an Urban Development Action Grant and a tax-increment bond issue. No new tax dollars were involved. Case Study
  10. 10. The Milwaukee Redevelopment Corporation then took three steps. First, it proposed the construction of a retail complex called the Grand Avenue, which would both recall the former Grand Avenue, Milwaukees historical retail/commercial artery (now Wisconsin Avenue), and offer an interior place, a semipublic realm better than that found in any suburban shopping center. Second, the MRC listed and responded to reactions to the idea. Third, it became a leading partner in the development and a link between private and public interest and investments in the project. From the point of view of catalytic urban design, the Grand Avenue project goes far beyond the bold vision, money, and political muscle that brought it into being. The value of Grand Avenue is only partly itself; it is equally valuable for its subsequent effects, the way it was able to catalyze other development. .
  11. 11. Among the reasons that Grand Avenue became a success cited by both municipal planners and officials were the old vision, funds to turn a vision into reality, and willingness of government and business leaders to work toward a common goal. But any such statement fails to represent fully the sustained commitment and action on the part of private and public leaders. The measure of an urban design should therefore include its capacity to enable the imagination and commitment to significant urban leadership. Catalyst approaches, being made up of strategically conceived elements, is thus more likely to facilitate such commitments, compared to overly ambitious longer term master planning
