Condo tower at Goll Mansion site clears another hurdle

The Zoning, Neighborhoods and Development Committee voted to recommend approval of re-zoning request for the 26-story condo tower that Milwaukee-based New Land Enterprises LLP plans to build behind the historic Goll Mansion.

The Milwaukee Common Council’s Zoning, Neighborhoods and Development Committee has voted to recommend approval of a re-zoning request for the 26-story, 35-unit condo tower that Milwaukee-based New Land Enterprises LLP plans to build behind the historic Goll Mansion at 1550 N. Prospect Ave., on the city’s east side. The $60 million project would include a $1 million restoration of the 110-year-old mansion, which would be connected to the new condo tower.

The project has generated some controversy as some neighbors have complained that the condo tower would block their views of the lake. However, the project has been endorsed by the city’s Historic Preservation Commission, the Plan Commission and now the Zoning, Neighborhoods and Development Committee. The re-zoning request by New Land still needs approval from the full Common Council, which meets next on Oct. 7.

Scott Kindness is the principal architect for the project and H. Russell Zimmerman will be the architect for the restoration of the Goll Mansion.
