Blue Ribbon Lofts is a 95-unit apartment building located in the former Pabst Brewery Keg House. The project, completed by Gorman and Company, was aided by WHEDA tax credits, which requires that 69 of the apartments be set aside for people that qualify within a certain income range. In addition the project received a loan from WHEDA, as well as federal and state historic preservation tax credits.

The project cost approximately $16.2 million to complete. It includes indoor parking, a fitness center, and a media room.

The building was originally completed in 1911, with the renovation being completed in 2009.
