The Sheridan Apartments in Milwaukee is a highly intact example of a 1920s-era, Mediterranean Revival-style apartment building. It could also become the latest nationally-recognized historic building in Milwaukee.
Its owner is Rick Wiegand, who also owns the Ambassador Hotel a block away.
Wiegand has applied for the 100-year-old building to be given a national historic designation, which would allow him to use historic tax credits to make improvements to the building, Carlen Hatala, Milwaukee’s historic preservation planner, said at a recent city meeting.
The request needs approval from Wisconsin’s Historic Preservation Review Board. The board was slated to consider the request in mid-August.
Hatala said many of the building’s original materials have been preserved.
