Two50Two is the under construction Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design residence hall at 252 E. Menomonee Street in the Historic Third Ward. The building is being developed by General Capital Group, but will be managed by MIAD. Also included in the facility will be first-floor commercial space.
The building will contain housing for 310 students as well as two retail stalls. A 4,000 square-foot stall is leased to Blick Art Supply. A second 1,780 square-foot stall is still available.
The residences are laid out as 75 two-bedroom suites, with four students sharing a living room, kitchen, and two bathrooms. Additional accomodations are including for nine student resident assistants and the resident manager. The facility will cost $6,800 for the 2014-2015 academic year, with a $700 fee for utilities, cable, and internet access. For a number of years students at MIAD lived in the Eisner Building, but have switched in recent years to The Park at 1824. MIAD will cease leasing that facility when the Two50Two opens.
The new residence hall will replace a one-story building at the site. Before demolition that building was home to Snap Fitness and Fore Milwaukee, a virtual driving range.
The new facility is expected to open in the fall of 2014. It is being designed by Historic Third Ward headquartered Engberg Anderson.
