Progress on Frederick Lofts
New building in The Brewery, named after Capt. Frederick Pabst, will feature 100 apartments plus parking.
The construction of Gorman & Company’s four-story Frederick Lofts apartment building, on a .82 acre lot at N. 9th St. and W. Juneau Ave. in The Brewery, is nearing the finish line. The building is named after Pabst namesake Captain Frederick Pabst, and for good reason: from 1875 to 1892 this was the site of Pabst’s home, then at 828 Chestnut St. within the Pabst Brewing complex. During excavation at the site a little bit of Milwaukee’s history was revealed: Two tunnels that were likely used to keep beer cold until at least the 1870s were exposed.
When finished the building will have 100 market-rate apartments plus one floor of underground parking. The apartment mix will include one- and two-bedrooms units as well as live/work lofts. Amenities include a fitness center, community room, and a rooftop deck which should provide good views.
The apartment building is planned to open during the summer of 2015.
Around The Neighborhood
The neighborhood has seen a number of new developments in recent years. Frederick Lofts is south of the Brewery Point Apartments, a new 48-unit senior housing apartment building. It is just across N. 9th St. from the the Brewery Parking Structure, which was one of the first projects developed at The Brewery. Just to the west of the garage is the Zilber School of Public Health, which brought UW-Milwaukee to the neighborhood. Further to the west is the Gorman developed Brewhouse Inn & Suites and the recently completed Pabst Professional Center.
Development at The Brewery continues today. The redevelopment of the Pabst Bottling facility (Building 29), located between N. 9th and N. 10th streets and W. Juneau and W. Highland avenues, into a 250,000 square foot multi-purpose educational facility is soon to get underway. A construction fence recently went up around the building.
