Periodic Report dated 12/31/15, available at: http://city.milwaukee.gov/ImageLibrary/Groups/cityDCD/business/TIF/2015-.... Workforce development information came from Beth Kevit, "Workforce development program would ensure locals build Northwestern tower in Milwaukee," The Daily Reporter (Milwaukee, WI), May 14, 2014.

Notes: 

The subsidy package awarded the company property tax rebates of $50 million over 25 years through the creation of a TIF district. The TIF revenue was also to be used for $22 million in infrastructure improvements near the building; these are not included in the subsidy total. The Wisconsin Regional Training Partnership Inc. provided a four-year $500,000 workforce development training program. Overlaps with main Subsidy Tracker data: a 2013 $50 million entry for the company for TIF.
