From 2011 through 2014 the building is being leased by the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD) to house freshman students.
The project opened in July 2009. Prior to construction, the site was occupied by the Park Manor Healthcare Center. That nursing home closed in 2006. Wangard Partners bought the site for $1 million.
The Park at 1824 has a rooming house permit allowing more than three unrelated persons to live together. The fully furnished building has 173 beds.
The project’s general contractor was Altius Building Company.
According to the Wangard website,
Amenities include in-unit hookups for Internet, cable and higher-end finishes. Building amenities include a laundry facility, workout area with state-of-the-art exercise equipment, lounge/study area, and Wi-Fi access throughout the common areas. It is also fully furnished with many details catering to students’ needs. The enclosed underground parking garage has approximately one parking stall per unit. This project was completed in July 2009.
