Construction of The Edge, a $13.7 million, 133-unit condominium development at 1890 N. Commerce St., Milwaukee, began recently and is expected to be completed by next fall, said Jonathan Dennis, vice president of development for Chicago-based Tandem Developers LLC. Tandem and Milwaukee-based Brewery Works Inc. are developing The Edge. So far 45 percent of the condominiums in the development have been sold, Dennis said.
Recently Gov. Jim Doyle announced that the project will receive a blight elimination and brownfield redevelopment grant of $150,000 from the state. The Edge will be the latest of several condominium developments along Commerce Street that have dramatically transformed the Beerline area just north of downtown from a rundown rail line into a new residential neighborhood.
