The  former Hotpoint Appliance Manufacturing Facility has a long and storied  history in West Milwaukee. The facility dates back to pre-World War II  and provided employment for tens of thousands of workers during its  operation.  The facility closed in 1991 and has remained vacant since  that time.

Work on the  redevelopment of the former Hotpoint Appliance Facility property is  proceeding in accordance with the plan approved by the Village of West  Milwaukee Board of Trustees.  Work completed to date includes the  demolition of approximately 600,000 square feet of old, obsolete  buildings including the former manufacturing and warehouse facilities;  the environmental clean up of ground water and industrial  contaminations; and grading and various site improvements.

Pick  n’ Save Food StoKurth-Maltingre and Menard’s Home Improvement opened in the summer  2007.  The Village of West Milwaukee completed various Miller Park Way  improvements to better facilitate and manage increased traffic volumes  anticipated to occur because of this redevelopment.  These improvements  included median modifications, traffic signal installations and various  sanitary sewer and storm sewer improvements.

The multi-tenant  building at the front of the development has confirmed Summit Credit  Union,  Great Clips, Verizon Wireless, GNC and Dickeys Barbeque as  tenants.

The old Kurth site  (across the street from Hotpoint)  located on the south east side of Miller Park Way is  home to Rocky Rococo Pizza,  CITI-Financial, US Cellular, Office Max, Firestone and  Sonic.  Gordon Food Service (GFS) located next to Firestone held their grand opening in October, 2011.
