The Timber Lofts, the first mass timber building to be constructed in Milwaukee, is set to open this spring.

Located at 300 W. Florida St. in the city’s Walker’s Point neighborhood, the 60-unit apartment building with ground-floor retail is a combination of historic renovation and new construction. The project includes restoration of the Louis Bass building as well as new construction to the south of the existing structure.

The new portion is being constructed in the cross laminated timber method, meaning it can achieve building heights and spans that would have once required more fossil fuel-intensive materials, such as concrete or steel, according to project developer Pieper Properties Inc.

Owner: Pieper Properties Inc.
Size: 68,762 square feet
Cost: $14.6 million
