Vacant historic beauty

Who Really Owns It?

The Center for Real Estate is based in the Marquette University College of Business Administration.

Those who have exited the Hoan Bridge onto East Clybourn Street may have noticed this beautiful three-story cream city brick building surrounded by parking lots and wondered, ‘How can this be vacant?’

The Historic Edward Townsend Mix-designed building located at 320 E. Clybourn St. between North Milwaukee Street and North Broadway borders the Historic Third Ward and the central business district.

Built in 1874, the 11,700-square-foot building has housed many tenants, including the Wisconsin Leather Co. and most recently, exotic art and furniture store From Afar.

The Boerke Co. has listed it for $1 million and broker Darrell Fischer says it is under contract to an unnamed buyer.

Address: 320 E. Clybourn St., Milwaukee 

Owner: Lorette Russenberger

Assessed: $680,000
