Madison-based Frank Productions Inc. will not proceed with a proposed music venue that was to be built next to Maier Festival Park in Milwaukee’s Third Ward, according to a report from the Milwaukee Business Journal. FPC Live and Milwaukee World Festival Inc. together said the project at the announced site will not proceed for multiple reasons but offered few details. FPC stated that the company remains committed to developing a venue in Milwaukee and is continuing to consider other sites. Construction on the proposed $40 million-plus project was to begin this year.
