“Sage” Apartment Building Nearly Finished
Jackson Street is becoming a nice urban street, now with new, environmentally friendly apartments.
A quiet side street that was once home to MSOE keg parties and arguably Milwaukee’s best restaurant (Sanford) has been transformed by three apartment buildings. Interestingly enough, all of them are designed by Striegel-Agacki Studio. The last of which is nearing completion.
SAGE on Jackson, 1509 N. Jackson St., as it will be known, will feature 20 market-rate apartments spread over five floors. Situated next to Points East Pub, the building forms a bookend for the recent development on N. Jackson St. As we covered during the proposal process, the building has a litany of environmentally friendly features.
The empty lots are now gone, completing the street wall and creating the feeling of an inviting room to walk through. The buildings are all well proportioned for the neighborhood and create an attractive contrast in styles with the 100-year-old homes they abut. The new buildings have made this two block stretch a great urban street.
The developer, Dominion Properties, already has three other projects in the pipeline for surrounding neighborhoods. All will carry the “SAGE” name and the street they are located on and all will contain apartments with a very environmentally friendly design.
In other N. Jackson St. news, Pleasant Kafe, a bakery and café, is soon to open at the corner of E. Pleasant and N. Jackson streets.
