Apartment development proposed for West Allis

A 38-unit apartment development is being proposed for West Allis.

Developer Chris Miller, of Hartland-based Miller Marriott Custom Homes LLC, wants to build a pair of two-story buildings, with 19 units each, on 2.2 acres on the west side of S. 92nd Street, immediately north of
the railroad overpass between W. Mitchell  and W. Rogers streets, according to a city Plan Commission report.

Miller would demolish two homes and a garage on the site to make way for the new development, called 92nd Street Commons. The estimated project costs are $3.3 million.

92nd Street Commons would include 50 parking spaces, which is 10 fewer spaces than normally required by the zoning code. 

"The developer’s target market is the empty nesters and singles who typically only have one car," the report said. The Plan Commission is to review the proposed development at its Wednesday meeting.

The apartments would range in size from 750 to 1,100 square feet, with monthly rents projected at $750 to $1,100. The development would offer 12 two-bedroom units, 24 one-bedroom units and two studio units.

Miller couldn't be reached for comment Monday.

Miller Marriott's other projects include a proposed high-end single-family home development, with 21 lots, in Delafield.

Miller plans to buy the 14-acre site, originally planned as The Sanctuary of Delafield condo development, from Commerce State Bank, which took over the property after foreclosing on Trillium Development last year. A public hearing on the proposed home development is set for May 30.
