A bankruptcy judge Tuesday approved the sale of the former Milwaukee Solvay Coke & Gas Company site to Wisconsin Gas LLC, a We Energies affiliate. It was the only bidder, offering $4 million for the 47-acre parcel.
We Energies is among several businesses that are responsible for the site's environmental cleanup. The utility used to operate a gas works there years ago.
Before previous owner Golden Marina filed for bankruptcy, it had hoped to create housing and a marina there.
