New apartments at Pabst win approval

The Milwaukee Plan Commission approved a proposal Monday to develop a 100-unit high-end apartment building at the former Pabst brewery.

As I reported last week, the $20 million four-story building would be at the northeast corner of W. Juneau Ave. and N. 9th St. The vacant lot is just east of the parking structure at the Pabst site, now known as the Brewery.

Gorman & Co., based in the Madison area, plans to begin construction next spring. Known as the Frederick Lofts, it would include underground and surface parking, a fitness center, clubhouse and rooftop deck.

The prospective monthly rents would range from $990 for efficiency units to $1,750 for two-bedroom units.
