Bay Vue Rising
Newest apartment building in Bay View is nearing completion.
Bay View has a new view. The Vue Apartments building at 2202 S. Kinnickinnic Ave. will serve as an anchor to the south side neighborhood’s main street.
The five-story building will consist primarily of one-bedroom apartments. The triangular building is being developed at the southeast corner of S. Kinnickinnic Ave. and E. Ward St.
The building’s design was revised to be more traditional following a series of neighborhood meetings led by area alderman Tony Zielinski.
The development will include 73 parking stalls located underground and on the first floor.
Dermond acquired a 22-stall, city-owned parking lot to create the eastern portion of the site. Under terms of the acquisition, the developer was required to build a new 13-stall parking lot just northeast of the building at an estimated cost of $200,000. That lot is open to the public.
The Catalyst Construction website lists the project as scheduled to open this fall. While that seems unlikely at this point, materials for the building’s brick facade were spotted at the construction site Friday morning. It won’t be long before the building resembles the renderings.
We last profiled the project on April 28th. Since then an approximately 140-unit, $25 million apartment building has been approved for the north side of Zilman Park.
