Wangard Partners Inc. is moving forward with plans for a mixed-use development at North Water and East Brady streets.
The Milwaukee developer is proposing a two-phase project that will include 89 apartments with 92 parking spaces and 4,500 feet of commercial space, including a coffee shop, in the first phase, said Wayne Wiertzema, Wangard president.
Phase one is expected to cost $21 million.
Phase two will include a second mixed-use building with a “small amount” of commercial space and an undetermined amount of residential units, Wiertzema said.
The Milwaukee Board of Zoning Appeals will consider Wangard’s proposal Nov. 12.
According to the application filed with the city, the four-story luxury apartment will incorporate an extension of the Milwaukee River Walk along the full length of the property at 1693 & 1701-1729 N. Water St.
There will be three access points to the river walk with public access.
Wiertzema said Wangard has owned the property for several years and has made some modifications to development plans for the land.
Wangard would like to begin construction on the development first quarter next year.
