    That’s going to be a real beauty when it’s done!

    “Blue Ribbon Management specializes in the use of EB-5 financing, which allows foreign nationals to obtain green cards in exchange for job-creating investments in targeted areas.”

    Questions:
    How much money must a foreign national invest to get a green card, and how many jobs are created by that investment? Are the foreign nationals “vetted” before accepting their money and providing them a green card or is it given to any foreign national with money to invest? What countries are represented in this investment?

    I can see the benefits of this type of housing for the international students, but at the same time both the international students and the “local” students miss out on a great opportunity to live among one another. Both benefit when you can integrate the international students more into the local community. The exchange of ideas and cultures is extremely beneficial… hiding international students away in a residential building all by themselves tends to isolate them. Everyone’s experiences are enriched the more they interact with US born students.

    I suppose the students can have a choice about where they live; is that a problem for you AG?

    Thanks for the link, Sam. It provided answers to most of my questions. I couldn’t find the answer to what countries are investing in this particular project.

    It seems like a good project.

    Tim- Of course I have no problem with them having a choice. I’m just stating my opinion on all international student housing. Both the international and the local students miss out on a great opportunity by them choosing to live in places like that.

    I know from personal experience and working with others who have had personal experiences, that being an international student is stressful and often times it can be too easy to fall into a comfort zone by finding others like you. Being forced to interact with the local culture is not an easy, but can have vast benefits.

    Hi all,

    As the General Manager for the property, now officially named Eleven25 At Pabst, I wanted to let you know there have been some changes along the way. We are excited to be working with local universities to house students in their international programs but we will also be housing domestic students from Marquette, MSOE & UWM. The community will open in the summer of 2016 and we are now leasing for the ’16-’17 school year. We appreciate your interest in the development and are thrilled to be part of The Brewery neighborhood revitalization!

    Best regards,

    Jackie Higgins
    General Manager
