After more than four years of planning, the Community Within the Corridor project has started construction.
The $66 million project involves the redevelopment of the former Briggs & Stratton plant along 32nd Street, north of Center Street, on Milwaukee’s north side. It includes 197 units of affordable housing, a 35,000-square-foot community service facility and 25,000 square feet of recreational space.
The community service facility will have a daycare, small grocer, after-school programming, laundromat and creative collaborative workspace. Units range from studios up to four bedrooms.
Que El-Amin of Scott Crawford Inc., which is co-developing the project, said it is currently the largest privately owned affordable housing development in Wisconsin.
