The city of Milwaukee has plans to buy land near where the new Komatsu Mining Corp. headquarters will be for a possible passenger station for the Kenosha-Racine-Milwaukee commuter rail line.
The property the city plans to buy is across East Greenfield Avenue from where the $285 million headquarters is expected to be, according to the Milwaukee Business Journal.
The Milwaukee Business Journal reports that the city of Milwaukee and We Energies' affiliate Wisconsin Gas would sell land to Komatsu for that project. Wisconsin Gas also owns less than an acre north of Greenfield Avenue between a set of railroad tracks. Milwaukee has negotiated an agreement to buy that land from Wisconsin Gas for a potential commuter rail stop.
This could service the KRM commuter rail which has been stalled since 2011 due to the lack of funding.
The land acquisition would ensure Milwaukee with the resources for the possibility of the KRM service in the near future.
