Esser Paint / Washington Park Townhomes 

Washington Park Townhomes is a new redevelopment by Gorman & Company, and involves the Esser Paint parcels that are identified as a catalytic redevelopment project in the 30th Street Industrial Corridor Economic Development Plan.  The project will consist of 40 attached single family dwelling units in six row-house style buildings.  There will be 26 two-bedroom and 14 three-bedroom units, as well as a 900-sf community building that will house a leasing ofice, a small conference room and maintenance shop.  This project will include a set aside for residents earning 30, 50, and 60 percent or less of the Milwaukee County Area Median Income. The project will target veteran families as an integrated supportive housing component (minimum of 25% of the housing units.)  Based on community stakeholder input, the project will also incorporate a public recreational path adjacent to the rail corridor.  Construction is planned to begin in the fall of 2017 and continue through 2018.
