Brady Street Development Underway
Two-story building will replace vacant lot.
Milwaukee Bucks guard Pat Connaughton is presumably more concerned this week with the pick-and-pop tendencies of the Miami Heat offense, but that doesn’t mean his real estate firm is standing flat-footed.
Three Leaf Development started construction earlier this year on its second Milwaukee project, a two-story building at the southwest corner of E. Brady St. and N. Marshall St.
The first floor will contain a divisible commercial space while the second story will contain a 2,400-square-foot apartment.
“We thought the building fit the scale for the lot, we didn’t want to go any higher, three or four stories or force in more apartments,” said the guard’s father Len Connaughton in February 2020 to members of the Historic Preservation Commission. Despite being a new building on a vacant lot, the property is part of the city-designated Brady Street Historic District.
Area Alderman Nik Kovac backed the project, noting that a community meeting yielded nearly unanimous support. It was the second time such a meeting was held for the site in recent years.
Patera is leading the design of the building. Three Leaf leads the general contracting on its projects.
Three Leaf also has two other Milwaukee projects. The first project, a three-story apartment building at 1245-1247 N. Milwaukee St., is nearly complete with an occupancy permit pending. Pre-submittal review is underway on a third project, a six-story apartment building with 13 units at 1737 N. Palmer St.
The firm, with Joseph Stanton serving as managing director, also has projects underway in other markets including South Bend, IN.
