Renner Architects announced this week that it has pre-sold more than "half of the value" of its 101-unit BreakWater Condominiums project. The BreakWater Condominiums is the 20-story, 101-unit condominium development that Renner Architects is building at 1313 N. Franklin Place. The condo units in BreakWater are priced between $225,000 and $1.15 million. The development is expected to be complete in the spring of 2009. The former Christopher East Medical Center building was demolished to make way for BreakWater. Renner also announced this week that the excavation for the project is complete and footings for the 260-foot tower are going in. On Dec. 2 what Renner says is "believed to be the largest Crawler crane in the State of Wisconsin" will be delivered to the site via 16 semi trucks and assembled on the street in front of the project. The 250-ton Kobelco crane has a 190-foot boom plus a 200-foot jib and can reach 400 feet. It will take two to three days to assemble the crane. More information about the project is available at:
