Through the Milwaukee Regional Center, 17 projects from six investment teams have been funded by EB-5 investments. Past projects and funds that have utilized the Milwaukee Regional Center include:
Brewhouse Inn & Suites
Building on Milwaukee’s proud beer brewing heritage, two historic buildings at the former Pabst brewery site in downtown Milwaukee have been converted to a 90-room extended-stay hotel, the Brewhouse Inn & Suites. The six-floor boutique hotel maintains many of the brewery's original features, including spiral stairwells, arched stone doorways in the lobby and the iconic brew kettles.
Geneva Ridge Resort
For generations, Lake Geneva in southern Wisconsin lake country has drawn thousands of visitors from across the U.S. Midwest to its sparkling beaches, shopping, dining, entertainment and golf. The Geneva Ridge luxury condominium hotel, managed in partnership with the Geneva National Golf Club, enjoyed a $100 million+ redevelopment thanks in part to funds raised from foreign investors based on the Milwaukee Regional Center.
FirstPathway Citizenship Fund
This fund invests in properties that qualify for EB-5 status. Each property is reviewed for its ability to generate the necessary direct and indirect jobs. Once this requirement has been established, the Fund analyzes the potential return on investment (ROI) and security of the overall project.
New Life Senior Wellness Center
New Life Senior Wellness Center is a mid-sized assisted living facility in the Lake Geneva region that provides senior care services, including memory care, assisted living care and adult day care.
