TJ Hale moves forward with plans to develop in Germantown

Aug. 12, 2014

Germantown — Plans for a world-class retail environments, engineering, construction, distribution and installation company known as TJ Hale continue to progress in Germantown's new industrial park.

On Aug.11, the plan commission reviewed initial site plans for the new facility, which were well received for the most part.

"I want to acknowledge I think it's great that you're going to be in Germantown," said Commissioner Marty Peck.

Construction on the project will begin later this year and will prompt the consolidation of operations of the company's 150 employees at locations in Menomonee Falls, Hartford and Milwaukee within the next year.

In doing so, it will become the anchor tenant of what will be known as Willow Creek Business Park, otherwise known as the recently approved tax-incremental financing district No. 6.

Phase one of the infrastructure work for the TIF has begun, according to Village Planner Jeff Retzlaff, and is meant to coincide with construction of the TJ Hale facility.

Also under consideration was the architecture and overall appearance of the building; landscaping and buffering; and site lighting and signage.

The neighboring wetlands could be a challenge, so Retzlaff said the site development will need to be sensitive to that.

The company, currently headquartered in Menomonee Falls, is planning a 218,350-square-foot facility for its new 33.2-acre site, which is within a 192-acre triangle encompassed by Appleton Avenue and Maple and Lannon roads in Germantown.

The new facility will more than double the size of its current headquarters in Menomonee Falls and includes a plan for potential future development of an additional 100,000 square feet.

Detailed site plans will be reviewed at next month's plan commission meeting, which will occur at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 8, at Village Hall, N112W17001 Mequon Road.
