An Alterra Cafe is being proposed for Wauwatosa, at the southeast corner of N. 68th and W. Wells streets.

Developers Sean Phelan and William Ibach are seeking permission to build the Alterra at 6745 W. Wells St. The Plan Commission is to review that proposal at its Monday meeting, according to the agenda.

The site is currently zoned for the Townhomes at Hyde Park, an eight-unit condo building Ibach proposed that hasn't gotten off the ground.

Milwaukee-based Alterra Coffee Roasters Inc. has 11 retail locations, including a cafe on Wauwatosa's west side, at 9125 W. North Ave., and a kiosk in Wauwatosa's Mayfair Mall. The company is building another cafe in Bay View as part of its new wholesale bakery.
