Apartment Buildings at the Corners of Brookfield Topped Off
Construction milestone reached; Model apartments to open early 2017; first occupancy mid-2017
Town of Brookfield, Wis. – Brookfield Corners, LLC, today announced it has reached the construction milestone of topping off the two luxury apartment buildings that are a part of The Corners, a $220 million mixed-use lifestyle redevelopment project now under construction on West Bluemound Road. A combined total of 244 apartment homes will be situated above 400,000 square feet of premier shopping and dining, featuring many retailers opening first-in-state and first-in-market stores. Initial occupancy of the apartments is forecasted for mid-2017. The retail portion of The Corners opens in Spring 2017.
“We’re really excited to introduce this forward-looking opportunity for apartment residents in the western suburbs,” said Robert Gould, Vice President of U.S. Operations for IM Properties. “The Corners provides a lifestyle experience very similar to downtown, but with a central location in the metro area that brings popular Waukesha County and Lake Country destinations into easy reach.”
The 244 apartment homes include studio, one bedroom, two bedroom and two bedroom/den alternatives situated in two, five-story buildings. The apartment buildings are some of the tallest structures on the Bluemound Road corridor and enjoy sweeping views over the area. Since topping out, the structures are readily apparent from both Bluemound Road and Interstate 94.
According to Gould, each apartment structure is individually themed and will offer a slightly different lifestyle. Dempsey Place features a more contemporary interior design treatment, with tall loft-like ceilings, a crisp color palette and unique floorplans. Garrison Court, with apartments encircling an interior green-roofed courtyard amenity, provides a classic and refined sense of modern apartment living. Both buildings will provide amenities such as fitness rooms, social rooms, a movie screening room and an outdoor terrace with a fire pit, outdoor kitchen and TV lounge. All apartments feature luxury finishes, including granite and quartz countertops, Energy Star-rated stainless steel appliances, oversized showers and soaking tubs and thoughtful storage space including walk-in closets. Apartment residents will utilize a private, access-controlled, covered parking area that provides direct entry to each apartment building.
Mandel Property Services, Inc. is the residential leasing and management company for The Corners and is receiving a steady flow of inquiries about the lifestyle center’s apartment offerings.
“As the buildings have gone up so has the interest in them from prospective tenants,” said Robert Monnat, COO for Mandel Group. “Topping out construction is really a turning point in the process, from which you’ll start to very quickly see these two structures move toward completion.”
Mandel will begin sending regular updates to those who inquire about the apartments, including private model showings and pre-opening receptions and tours.
“There is a good percentage of the renting public that is remaining in the suburbs, but who still want urban conveniences and the quality of finishes they see in downtown apartments,” added Monnat. “The Corners apartments are designed for those who want to live within an upscale, vibrant, walkable community but still want easy access to major thoroughfares, Lake Country recreational opportunities, or career opportunities in the east-west corridor,” said Monnat.
In addition to the apartments, the lifestyle center will feature a variety of retailers, restaurants and entertainment options to create a vibrant community and destination. Retailers already announced at The Corners include Von Maur, L.L.Bean, Arhaus, Anthropologie, Café Hollander, Evereve, Francesca’s, Free People, lululemon athletica, Paper Source, Sendik’s, Twigs and Scout & Molly’s.
