After some hurdles along the way, construction of two 30-unit apartment buildings at Mammoth Springs Cannery Company will begin in May, reported the Sussex Sun.
The development will eventually include five residential buildings, either three or four stories high, with one- and two-bedroom apartments ranging renting for $945 to $1,300 a month.
Property owner Arthur Sawall said in the past that the residential units will be “upscale apartments” and officer nice amenities, such as granite countertops.
There will also be two retail buildings at about 6,500 square feet each.
There was previously some delay caused by plans for the Waukesha County Bugline Trail. The trail runs through the middle of the site.
County and Village officials have agreed to move the trail from the center of Sawall's property to the north and west boundaries of the 11-acre site, reported the Sussex Sun.
Sawall plans to donate about an acre of land along the new trail route in order to meet federal requirements. Some additional approvals are also needed to make this move happen.
The construction can begin without the approvals for the trail transfer.
Sawall's property lies in a 40-acre tax incremental financing (TIF) district that covers most of the downtown residential and business districts.
