A new proposal calls for nearly $900,000 in city of Milwaukee funds to go toward construction of A.O. Smith Corp.’s new research center and other developments on the far northwest side. Milwaukee-based A.O. Smith, a manufacturer of water heaters and water treatment products, put forth plans for a 42,700-square-foot facility to be located at 11000 W. Park Place, to house the company’s Corporate Technology Center (CTC). A new proposal would create a tax incremental financing district for the “Park Place District” that would include capital project costs totaling $875,000.
