There is a meeting scheduled for Wednesday, March 5th at 6:00 p.m. on the second floor of the King Building, located at 2534 S. Kinnickinnic Ave. in Bayview. The King Building re-development will include the restoration of a vintage storefront building plus the construction of 32 luxury apartments.
The project will offer more than 4,000 square feet of prime commercial space in the existing 1929 building that was originally built as an automotive showroom. The building’s original features include large arched storefront windows, 17’ ceilings and terrazzo floors. The luxury residences will offer panoramic views, through the floor to ceiling windows, of Lake Michigan and the Milwaukee skyline. The contemporary interiors will feature warm finishes such as wood and natural stone. The rents for the one bedroom, one bedroom + den and two bedroom units will range from $1,150 to $1,750. The parking more than meets the minimum requirements with its planned 24 indoor and 12 outdoors spaces.
The project is designed and developed by local investor Scott Genke of SG Property Management LLC. SGPM currently owns and manages properties in Bayview, Walkers Point and The Eastside. In 2010 SGPM received a Cream of the Cream City Award For Outstanding Contributions to Historic Preservation in the City of Milwaukee for the 1887 Schroeder Building in Walkers Point.
