Projects

For Fix Development, the word development has many definitions: economic, physical, community, and organizational.

Fix has been leading the way in a variety of development projects, all with the common themes of sustainability, quadruple bottom line and serving as a catalyst for additional community development.

Commercial Projects

Clock Shadow Building
Fix Development’s first commercial and most recognized project featuring office and retail space.

Freshwater Fix
Redevelopment of an old industrial building in the revitalizing Walker’s Point neighborhood into a new retail space for small businesses including Purple Door Ice Cream, the winner of On Milwaukee.com’s 2014 “Best Dessert” award.  Fix Development utilized a crowd funding approach for a portion of this building’s equity underwriting and as a mechanism to help tenants pay for improvements.

Walnut Way’s The Innovation and Wellness Commons
Fix Development serves as co-developer, providing guidance for project decisions for this catalytic development project.  The project includes redevelopment of an historic building and construction of a new adjacent building that will form a hub for health and wellness services, economic development, educational and training programs and neighborhood organizing efforts in Lindsay Heights in the City of Milwaukee.

Historic Walter Schmidt Tavern Development
Eye Ntoboase LLC, a partnership between Lindsay Heights resident Jeremy Davis and Fix Development, is moving forward on the renovation of the Historic Walter Schmidt Tavern at 1848 W. Fond du Lac Ave., Milwaukee. The development will include a sit-down restaurant on the first floor, offices on the second, and a live/work studio on the third.

Residential Projects

Walker’s Point Single Family Home and Adjacent Rental Space

Built for the Kaufmann family, this project remediated a contaminated city lot to construct a green home that better aligned their lives with their personal values of personal responsibility, commitment to urban community and environmental sustainability. It was designed to include a multitude of state of the art environmental features while blending into the character of the surrounding neighborhood.

Shorewood Single Family Home

For this project, Fix Development removed a deteriorating home on the verge of condemnation through careful deconstruction and replaced it with a three bedrooms, three bath home and office designed to be nearly “off the grid” energy efficient. It utilizes durable and reclaimed building materials throughout and incorporated art and custom design features of local craftsmen.

Rural Projects

Afterglow Farm
Fix Development is providing strategic planning and project management for this 400-acre farm development in rural Port Washington in an effort to establish a more financially sustainable model for its operations, while honoring its heritage and building a legacy of stewardship for the land and its bounty.

Urban Projects

Fund Milwaukee
Juli Kaufmann is a co-founder of Fund Milwaukee, a local investment group that seeks to match unaccredited local investors with opportunities to support local entrepreneurs.

South SecondScape
Fix Development is leading the development and implementation of this South 2nd Street artscaping plan, which aims to create a placemaking identity for Walker’s point, with an emphasis on environmental sustainability.

Bublr Bikes
Juli Kaufmann is one of the original three local Milwaukee-area residents who created Midwest Bike Share, Inc., a nonprofit organization that is developing and implementing a bike sharing system intended to provide short-term bike rentals accessible to all Milwaukeeans. The system launched an eleven-station demonstration season in 2014 and will expand through additional roll-outs to achieve more than 100 stations with 1000 bikes by 2017.
