Senior apartments/library building planned for central city

A partnership of Madison-based Gorman & Company Inc. and the Northwest Side Community Development Corp. plans to build a four-story senior housing and library building on a mostly vacant lot at 3401-31 W. Villard Ave., in the central city of Milwaukee.

The proposed building, called Villard Square, would have 47 senior housing apartments and 12,000 square feet of ground floor space for a relocated Villard Avenue Library, currently located at 3310 W Villard Ave. The project would also include 36 covering parking spaces.

The apartments would be a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units.
