"Pizza Man will rise from the ashes in a new location on Milwaukee’s east side nearly three years after a fire ravaged the popular restaurant," according to the Marquette Tribune.
"Restaurant owner Mike Amidzich announced he signed a letter of intent on Nov. 15 to lease property at the southwest corner of North Downer Avenue and East Belleview Place, according to a press release.
Last Monday, the Historic Preservation Commission approved the plan to renovate two floors of the property on 2595-2597 N. Downer Ave., which currently houses a dry cleaner and six occupied apartments operating on month-to-month leases. Now, only minor-modification approvals require confirmation from the Plan Commission, zoning department and Common Council.
Less than a mile away from its former location on the northeast corner of E. North and N. Oakland avenues, the new Pizza Man will feature two floors of seating and an outdoor terrace on the second floor, the release said. Architect Matt Rinka of Rinka Chung Architecture will lead the renovation."
