Mandel Group Inc. has begun construction in Elm Grove on its new development, Caroline Heights Apartments. Caroline Heights will bring modern apartment living to the Elm Grove community. Caroline Heights’ name comes from the adjacent subdivision which was named after Mother Caroline Friess who established the School Sisters’ of Notre Dame’s Elm Grove campus in 1863.

Caroline Heights will be a 237-unit apartment community offering one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom apartments. Two prominent historic buildings along Watertown Plank Road, Notre Dame Hall and Maria Hall will be converted into 35 apartments, and three new apartment buildings with 202 apartments will be built on the campus. Price points will start at approximately $2,000 for one-bedroom apartments while three-bedroom apartments will lease for approximately $3,600. Caroline Heights caters to an underserved market of empty nesters looking to remain in or near the community in which they are living while residing in a spacious apartment home.

Once the utility infrastructure is installed, Miller Marriott, a custom design-build firm located in Hartland, Wisconsin, will purchase the eastern portion and southern portions of the campus to develop into 21 single-family homes. Miller Marriott specializes in building homes that are tailored to the specific needs and desires of their clients with a reputation for high-quality, timeless, classic design.

Residents of the historic-building apartments and new-construction apartments will enjoy underground parking, three-season rooms, walk-in closets, glass shower stalls, in-home washers and dryers, and stainless-steel appliances. Caroline Heights will be one of the most highly amenitized apartment communities in the Milwaukee area, including a heated pool and sun deck, fire pits, outdoor park, private courtyards, pet spa, fitness studio, golf simulator, car wash station, and electric vehicle charging stations. Caroline Heights will also feature the renovation of the former chapel and heritage room of the School Sisters into a beautiful two-story clubroom and entertainment space which can be rented by people and businesses inside and outside the Caroline Heights community.

First move-ins will occur in November 2024, with construction completion in early spring, 2025.

Caroline Heights was made possible through the support of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, the Village of Elm Grove, the City of Wauwatosa, Miller Marriott, Enberg Anderson Architects, Catalyst Construction, Lanser Public Affairs, KSingh & Associates, Resource Environmental Solutions, and Ayres Associates.
