UrbanMilwaukee.com was recently taken behind the construction fence for a tour of the first building, ONE, to be complete in the  Mandel Group’s The North End project.  We toured only the residential units in the building, although there will street-level retail space completed in the coming months along Water Street.

The green roof on the second floor, although far from finished, seemed impressive and a unique asset to the project.  The entertainment room, available to all residents, provides direct access to the green roof.

The parking garage is pretty well hidden, and isn’t visible from street-level on Water Street, a nice touch.

The sound-proofing between units seems significantly better than Mandel’s East Pointe neighborhood, although comparing the quality of construction between the two is essentially comparing apples to oranges (East Pointe was built in the early 90s before anything else was happening in downtown residential development).  Insulation on interior walls should help (both with heating and noise), as well as the concrete between floors.

The views from each unit offer nice angles on the rest of the city, and most angles will improve

Unit prices are as follows.

  • Studios start at $1,040
  • One bedrooms start at $1300
  • One bedrooms w/ den start at $1275
  • Two bedrooms start at $1700
  • Two bedrooms w/ den start at $1850
  • Three bedrooms start at $2200

As far as retail goes, discussions have taken place with Alterra and other retailers, but no dotted lines have been signed yet.

    That’s great that they’re including the green roof- especially for such a high-profile project in its very visible location.

    way, WAY too much money to be charging especially for a studio apartment.
