Ryan Co. is negotiating leases with those tenants for a new 5,300-square-foot building whose architecture was endorsed Monday by the city Plan Commission.

Trader Joe's is slated to , the second Milwaukee-area location for the popular grocer also at Bayshore Mall. A PNC Bank also is being constructed nearest to .

A junior anchor attached to Target also has not yet been announced.

City plan commissioners Monday praised Stephen Perry Architects for keeping the design of the multi-tenant retail building similar to the Trader Joe's, with comparable canopies, building materials, wall sconces and lighting. The building can house four tenants but current lease negotiations would accommodate three.
