601 Lofts is a ten-story condominium tower on the north edge of downtown Milwaukee. The building is made up of 80 residential condominiums, 4 commercial condominiums, and 120 parking spots (with eight reserved for the commercial tenants). The building was originally developed by KeyBridge Development.
The 601 Lofts building was constructed around the same time as developer Scott Fergus’ other large condominium project, First Place on the River (later renamed Point on the River). Fergus lost control of both properties as part of his bankruptcy declaration in early 2008. In 2010, a group led by Michael Dilworth purchased 16 unsold units for $2.2 million from M&I Bank.
The project broke ground on June 27th, 2005.
