Apartment development planned for historic Kenosha building

An Illinois-based developer wants to transform a four-story historic building in downtown Kenosha, vacant for several years and formerly occupied by the Kenosha Youth Foundation, into a 45-unit apartment building.

David Nankin of Highland Park, Ill.-based Legacy Property Management Services LLC and Varin Property Management LLC has submitted plans to the city for a $10.5 million redevelopment project for the four-story, 102,345-square-foot building at 720 59th Place.

He is seeking tax credits from the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority for the project, and some of the apartments would be subsidized affordable housing units with lower priced rents.
