MILWAUKEE (July 19, 2018) – River Place Lofts, a new and growing downtown community of luxury loft apartments recently completed Phase II of the project, opening the doors of “Docks Building” in April. Docks is a 39 unit, riverfront piece of Milwaukee’s history. Originally constructed in the 1870’s as part of the Pfister and Vogel Tannery, the buildings at River Place Lofts being transformed into modern, urban living spaces feature original heavy timber and Cream City brick construction with unique character pieces and breathtaking downtown views.

“We completed Phase I, the Beam House in Fall of 2015, and had already begun to look at ways to improve for Docks, Phase II. With leases being signed in Spring, and reaching 100% occupancy on the property when June rolled around, I think what we did here was successful. We constantly hear how much our tenants, their friends, and family love the preserved historical aspect of the project, and have fallen in love with the unique character each unit offers. We’re looking forward to Phase III, “The Finishing House” being completed later this Fall.”

Peter Moede, Owner and Developer

River Place Lofts is the only gated community in the downtown area, featuring guarded security dusk to dawn, and the only apartment complex in the area to offer residents total access to a boat with the option of hiring a captain for sunset cruises, cocktail hours, and the like. Other amenities tenants enjoy include direct access to the Hank Aaron State Trail, riverfront location, two club rooms with full kitchen and TV’s, a wine room with wine lockers, a cigar lounge, fitness center, bike and kayak storage, stainless steel appliances, granite finishes, in unit washer and dryer, key fob access, and being an easy walk to the Third Ward, Summerfest, Downtown, or into the heart of our neighborhood, Walker’s Point.

River Place Lofts transforms 19th century warehouse space into distinctive living environments. The oldest collection of buildings to be refurbished in Milwaukee offer not only exposed timbers and Cream City brick – but also spectacular panoramic skyline views. A complete down to the bones renovation allowed us to create imaginative floor plans in each of the four remaining buildings.
