The Avenir Nears Completion
Featuring 104 apartments and 7,000 square feet of retail space, it's the first mixed-use building constructed on the county's portion of Park East land.
Construction of the first phase of Wangard Partners, Inc.’s Avenir apartments is near completion. Located on a site bordered by N. Milwaukee, N. Jefferson, E. Lyon and E. Ogden streets, it will be the first mixed-use residential building to open within Milwaukee County’s former Park East Freeway land. Pre-leasing of apartments starts this September, when a model unit will open, and occupancy will begin in late October.
Construction of a two-level parking structure to accommodate the public and retail users will start next week.
A five-story, 95-unit apartment building located on N. Milwaukee St. will be built as the second phase of the project, and is expected to start construction in Spring 2015
