Today, the Milwaukee Common Council voted 13-2 to approve the proposed $50 million downtown Marriott project. This project will add hundreds of jobs in various sectors of the economy including construction and service employment positions that the city has been in need of.
The project is expected to take around 2 years to complete once it has begun. I think this is fantastic news which will give job seekers in Milwaukee, or better yet the state of Wisconsin - something to have faith in.
In the beginning of the economic downturn this type of project would have been almost unimaginable, but now, with a little more confidence - things seems to be taking off.
