Evergreen, Legacy Open 64-Unit Mixed-Income Apartment Community in Milwaukee

Legacy Lofts is partially housed in the former Blommer Ice Cream Factory, a three-story structure that was built in 1928.

MILWAUKEE — Evergreen Real Estate Group and Legacy Midwest Renewal Corp. (LMRC) have opened Legacy Lofts in Milwaukee’s Lindsay Heights neighborhood. The 64-unit, mixed-income rental community, located at 1500 W. North Ave., is partially housed in the former Blommer Ice Cream Factory, a three-story structure that was built in 1928 and sat vacant for nearly two decades. The developers preserved the original building in accordance with National Park Service guidelines and converted it into 38 apartment units. A three-story addition to the factory houses another 26 units. Of the 64 units, 54 are affordable to households earning less than 60 percent of the area median income. Continuum Architects + Planners was the architect for the $13.9 million project. U.S. Bank, Associated Bank, the city of Milwaukee, the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority and IFF provided additional financial support. In addition to the residences, the project includes 1,565 square feet of street-level commercial space that houses the new offices of LMRC.
