Brewery Projects Near Completion

An apartment building and a hotel add more excitement to the redevelopment project at the old Pabst brewery.

Two projects at the former Pabst brewery are nearing completion. CommonBond Communities 48-unit Brewery Point Apartments looks about as close to done as it could get from the outside. Just a block away, the Brewhouse Inn and Suites extended stay hotel now has a number of windows installed and the back patio space is taking shape.

The two projects represent the extremes of what The Brewery has to offer, with the apartments being completely new construction, and the hotel being a conversion of the abandoned brewhouse building. The two will add to the new neighborhood that’s taking shape in place of the former brewing complex. The apartments are scheduled to open in February 2013 and will house seniors as a condition of their tax credits from WHEDA. The hotel hopes to open by March 2013.

For those keeping score at home, in addition to these two projects The Brewery features the Best Place bar, Blue Ribbon Lofts apartments, UW-Milwaukee School of Public Health, Cardinal Stritch’s College of Education and Leadership,  the “Pabst Boiler House Building 10” (an office building with a mix of tenants from architects to lawyers), Zilber Park, a proposed office building, and a 900-stall parking garage that is LEED Golf certified.

These buildings were featured in a previous Friday Photos from earlier in the Summer. Compare their progress with where they are today. Additionally, we published a photo gallery of the Brewhouse Inn and Suites interior from Doors Open Milwaukee.
