    I don’t mean to be pedantic, but isn’t it a slight oversight to not give the address of the development? I was scouring the article trying to find it’s exact location so I could see the streetview image of its current state.

  2. Dave Reid says:

    @Chris. Good point… I added in the address of the former museum which is where the new building will be located.

  3. CJ says:

    So the Garfield Avenue School will be turned into apartments? Just wondering why the more majestic building wasn’t used for a museum.\

  4. Paul Bachowski says:

    Maybe the article was updated but I see the location of Fourth and North Avenue/ 2235 N 4th shown twice in the article.
    From what I’ve heard at neighborhood meetings ABHM will be located in the basement of the former school with future expansion into a portion of the new commercial space on Fourth and North.

  5. MilwaukeeMan says:

    How sad it was to read comments on local news sites about this development and to see the majority of them be negative. Many “get over its”, “there was no black holocaust” and the dog whistle “whose paying for it?”

  6. LBB says:

    I agree with CJ, a museum with “significance” should be housed in a significant architecture, not the “commercial” ground floor of a mediocre development.

  7. Darlene Bullox says:

    I am very excited to see this coming to pass, and would very much like to live in these new apartments being built on 4th Street and West North Ave. I have rented and lived in this neighborhood and home for 32 years and the landlord refuses to hire someone to fix the house and I am getting too old at 64 years old to shovel and cut grass any more. Please let me know where I can apply to rent a unit in this new building when it is finished being built. The renovated museum would be an added bonus!

    Much appreciation for any feedback on this new project. Thank you very much! DB
