26-story apartment tower planned on Goll House site on Prospect

A Madison developer is proposing a $55 million development with 202 apartments on the site of the historic Goll House on North Prospect Avenue in Milwaukee.

The proposal would preserve the Goll House and move it closer to Prospect Avenue. A 26-story apartment building would be built behind it, at 1550 N. Prospect Ave., on the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, according to plans submitted to the city.

The proposal is from an affiliate of Madison developer Palisade Property. Palisade Property has been looking at the site at least since last summer when it put the land under contract for purchase and was in talks with Milwaukee Ald. Robert Bauman over a 17-story apartment building on the property.

well, it looks like this project is likely heading towards a significant down-sizing.

City balks at Goll Mansion site tower proposal

City officials are balking at the density of the proposal brought forward by a Madison-based apartment operator who wants to build a 26-story, 202-unit apartment tower on the site of the historic Goll Mansion on Milwaukee’s East Side.

Last week, the city’s Department of City Development met with Palisade Properties Management LLC and told them they would not support the proposal that was submitted in February.

the downsizing might not be terribly significant afterall.

apparently the site in questioned is already zoned for 186 units as of right, only 8% less than the 202 units in the original proposal that was shot down by the city council.

Goll House developer could build 186 apartments
Yesterday 3:43 p.m.
By Tom Daykin of the Journal Sentinel

The apartment tower proposed for the Goll House site on Milwaukee's east side, delayed by density concerns, may not need to reduce a lot of apartments in order to obtain city zoning approval.
......

But it turns out that the property's zoning allows a building with 186 apartments without council approval, according to the Department of City Development. That unit count is calculated in part by taking into account the development site's square footage.

East side high-rise developer proposes lower apartment count


Updated: 10:07 a.m.
By Tom Daykin of the Journal Sentinel

The developer who wants to build a high-rise at the Goll House site on Milwaukee's east side is reducing the tower's number of apartments after city officials raised concerns about the proposal's density.

Madison developer Chris Houden's revised plans are calling for a 27-story building with 192 units, according to a new Department of City Development report.

Houden would develop the tower on a 27,938-square-foot site at 1550 N. Prospect Ave.

The Goll House, a historic former mansion converted into offices, would be moved about 30 feet northwest from its current location to make way for the tower. Houden would develop another four to eight apartments in the Goll House, the city report said.

Houden's earlier proposal, filed with the department, called for a 26-story building with 202 units.

so the unit count has been lowered close to the as-of-right threshold and the tower itself is now proposed to be 1 story taller. win-win!

Developers say new tower key to preserving Goll Mansion

In the summer of 2013, Christopher Adams, principal of Dominion Properties, was attending a fundraiser for Doors Open Milwaukee at Bill Nasgovitz’s home in Shorewood, and the two started talking about historic preservation.

“Our original intention was to build a five- to six-story apartment building behind the mansion and fully renovate the mansion into apartments on the second and third floors,” Adams said.

The project would have been similar to the Sage Developments Dominion Properties have done on Jackson and Prospect on Milwaukee’s East Side.

Adams quickly learned it would take a much larger apartment tower to yield the profits needed to restore the mansion.

this one appears to have been killed by the city council at the behest of next door NIMBYs.

Council Kills Prospect Ave High Rise
Impressive 27-story, $55 million project is dead, due to opposition of neighbors.
By Jeramey Jannene - Jul 26th, 2016 12:56 pm


The Milwaukee Common Council effectively killed a $55 million, 27 story tower proposed for 1550 N. Prospect Ave. today. The proposed apartment building required a zoning change to allow it to move forward. The council voted 10-5 to approve that change, but didn’t meet the super majority requirement for the vote. Alderman Robert Bauman led the opposition to the project on the basis that the proposed tower is “just too much building for the site.”

Joining Bauman is voting against the project were aldermen Cavalier Johnson, Jose G. Perez, Mark Borkowski and Tony Zielinski.

Chris Houden and his Madison-based firm DCH Properties, whose firm proposed the project, released this statement: “We are incredibly disappointed that while the majority of the council supported the development, a small minority blocked what would have been a $55 million investment in the city. Like a majority of the council, we believe that the development would have been a win-win-win for our community – bringing a $55 million project to the city, creating new jobs for city residents and ensuring the restoration and revitalization of the historic Goll House.”

Vote is 10-5, motion denied. Is this even a democracy anymore?
