To the north and west of the building at 324-326 W. State St. lie the boundaries of the Deer District, to the east is the busy commercial hub of Old World Third Street, and to the south are the Journal Sentinel buildings, which were recently purchased by Milwaukee developer Josh Jeffers for an adaptive reuse project.
But, at least for now, nothing is happening with this roughly 2,000-square-foot building.
In 2017, owner Athina Properties unveiled plans to convert it into a tavern, but that project hasn’t moved forward. A representative of Athina Properties said in January they are actively and aggressively looking to come up with something meaningful for the site. They didn’t provide specifics beyond that.
The building was constructed in 1885 and for many years was home to Accurate Key & Lock.
