New East Library Complex Rising
Will The Standard set a new standard for local libraries? Our photos capture progress of construction.
HSI Properites, LLC’s 99-unit mixed-use building, The Standard at East Library, is currently under construction on Milwaukee’s East Side. Once complete the building will include a 16,000 square-foot first-floor space for the new east branch of the Milwaukee Public Library system. The former East Library, at 1910 E. North Ave., was demolished to allow for construction of the new mixed-use building to be built.
The new library will include multiple pieces of new public art both inside and outside the building. In October, local artists Santiago Cucullu and kathryn e. martin were selected to construct public art pieces inside the new library. And this past week the Milwaukee Public Library put out a call for artists to help create a community space with public art for a triangular shaped plaza on N. Cramer St. In a press release Library Director Paula Kiely explains, “this new work of art will be a beacon for all the library represents and offers the community.”
