PLEASANT PRAIRIE — A developer’s plans for 20 multi-unit condominium buildings at Old Green Bay Road and 104th Street (Highway 165) will move forward after the Plan Commission approved the conceptual plans for the proposed project.
After a public hearing, the commission voted 7-0 Monday night in favor of the proposal which calls for the construction of six, three-unit buildings and 14, two-unit buildings, known collectively as the Green Bay Trail Condominiums, in the Lakewood Neighborhood.
The commission also approved a comprehensive plan amendment, which included a reduction on the number of condominium units.
The project, proposed by Kenosha-based Harpe Development LLC, is expected to come before the Village Board for consideration Monday.
According to the plans, the two-unit buildings will be ranch-style condos with an attached two-car garage and a full basement. There will be 1,626-square-foot units with two bedrooms and two baths as well as 1,691-square-foot units with three bedrooms and two baths.
The three-unit buildings will be two stories each with two of the units designed as a ranch-style offering with a three-car attached garage, full basements and two bedrooms and two baths. One unit will be 1,617 square feet and the other will be 1,629 square feet.
The upper unit will have 2,276 square feet of living space on the second floor and an entry foyer with extra storage space on the first floor. The upper unit will include a two-car, extra-deep attached garage, three bedrooms, two baths, an office and a covered deck.
Start this spring
Community Development Director Jean Werbie-Harris said Harpe anticipates starting construction this spring and expects the development to be completed in the next two to three years.
The neighborhood plan at Lakewood originally called for a different development. In 2007, the Village Board approved the Vintage Parc Condominium development, which included three, six-unit buildings and 12, four-unit buildings. However, due to the economic recession in the years that followed, the development never materialized.
For the proposed new development, the comprehensive plan was changed to reflect the new layout, which included reducing the number of condominium units from 66 to 46, Werbie-Harris said.
Previously, the developer of the first condominium project began partial grading, infrastructure and public improvements, and as a part of the developer’s agreement paid the village just over $187,400 to be used to widen the intersection at Old Green Bay Road and Highway 165, she said.
Werbie-Harris said that work is expected to take place as early as late spring as part of the Main Street Market development, a 22-acre parcel at Green Bay Road and 104th Street, which includes Froedtert South.
