The City of Milwaukee offers you the following original house plans for free when you purchase* one of our vacant infill lots. These high quality designs meet City building standards and can be fast-tracked for permitting. It is our way of saying thanks for investing in Milwaukee.
These new houses fit beautifully on urban lots and complement the existing architecture of Milwaukee’s neighborhoods. While traditional in style, they offer up-to-date open floor plans to accommodate the way today’s families live. These houses are designed with energy efficiency, sustainability and expansion in mind. Plans with accessibility variations are also available to accommodate residents and visitors with disabilities and to allow Milwaukeeans to age gracefully in their homes.
Also included in the catalogue is the Preservation Portfolio for residents interested in building a reproduction home based on classic homes from Milwaukee’s past.
