A fitness center plans to move to a redeveloping street within Milwaukee's Menomonee Valley, mainly to avoid noise complaints.

BrewCity CrossFit wants to move to around 10,000 square feet within a 20,000-square-foot industrial building at 1601 W. St. Paul Ave., according to plans filed with the city Board of Zoning Appeals.

The business, which provides classes in weightlifting, gymnastics and other fitness activities, would be in the same former industrial complex as Third Space Brewing LLC.

Also, BrewCity would be near an industrial building, at 1418 W. St. Paul Ave., that is being converted into the new offices for Plum Moving Media, a video production business now located in the Historic Third Ward.

BrewCity opened six years ago within a former candy factory, at 408 W. Florida St., that was zoned to allow a fitness center.

That Walker's Point building was later sold to a developer, and in 2015 was converted to Brix Apartment Lofts.

New residents began complaining about the sounds and vibrations from activities at BrewCity, according to the zoning board filing.

So, BrewCity owner Daniel Noonan started looking for a new home "where we would not disturb neighboring residents or businesses," the filing said. BrewCity earlier this year moved from the Brix building to temporary space at Grand Avenue mall.

The St. Paul Ave. site needs a use variance from the zoning board to allow BrewCity to operate there.

The board is to review the variance request at its May 4 meeting.
