The Innovations and Wellness Commons (aka The Commons) is a community-driven, cooperatively funded multi-use commercial development on the corner of N. 16th and W. North Ave. in Milwaukee’s historic Lindsay Heights neighborhood. The Commons is revitalizing the commercial corridor of W. North Avenue, creating sustainable jobs, and increasing access to a variety of integrated services – healthy food, workforce training, educational and community programming, and health and wellness services – for local residents.
Phase II of The Innovations and Wellness Common will broke ground in 2019 and will host health and wellness focused tenants such as Milwaukee AHEC, Benedict Center, Nutritionists, and Counselors. Phase II includes a rooftop convening space that will be open to tenant-partners and community groups for events up to 130 people.
