Three proposed multi-family projects await a final decision from the Milwaukee Common Council, which is scheduled to consider them on July 23. Totaling 229 units, the developments were recently approved by city’s Zoning, Neighborhoods and Development Committee, The Business Journal reports.

Milwaukee-based HD Development Group is proposing the largest of the three, a 122-unit, market-rate complex located on a 1.9-acre vacant lot near the Milwaukee River at North Humboldt and East North avenues.

Wisconsin Lutheran College is planning to build 54 market rate units on West Wisconsin Ave. to serve the institution’s growing enrollment. Designed by Eppstein Uhen Architects, Inc., the $6.4-million, six-story structure (at right) would replace four smaller apartment buildings the college owns between North 89th and North 90th streets.

The third development would bring 53 affordable rental units to a site at North Holton and East Brown streets in the Brewers Hill neighborhood. Proposed by locally-based Vangard Development Group L.L.C., the four-story project would draw on state low-income housing tax credits.
