Three separate developments are being planned in Milwaukee to provide housing for low-income residents.
Cardinal Capital Management Inc. and United Christian Church Inc. plan to build a three-story, 24-unit apartment building on a vacant lot at 2500 W. Center St., Milwaukee, for lower-income residents. Most of the first floor of the building will provide space to serve the neighborhood, not just residents of the building, with a library, a computer lab, a multi-purpose room, a kitchen and a multi denominational chapel/seminar room. The first floor will also have office space for case workers, an exam room and other space to serve residents. The building will receive tenant referrals from the Milwaukee County Department of Health and Human Services. All of the units will have income restrictions.
United Methodist Children’s Services plans to build a three-story, 32,100-square-foot building adjacent to its existing structure at 3900 W. Lisbon Ave., Milwaukee, with 18 apartment units. The apartments will be priced so families earning between $20,000 and $30,000 a year can afford them. The building also will have 10,000 square feet of community space, including a multi-purpose community room and a fitness room. In addition, UMCS plans to build six town home units along 39th Street. The project’s total cost is estimated at $5.7 million.
Heartland Housing Inc. and The Guest House of Milwaukee plan to redevelop the former Genesis Detox Facility at 1218 W. Highland Blvd., Milwaukee, into a 24-unit apartment building for low income residents. Heartland Housing is the housing division of Heartland Alliance for Human Needs & Rights, a service-based human rights organization that provides housing, health care, human services, and human rights protections to more than 72,000 impoverished people annually. Heartland Housing has developed more than 1,000 housing units.
