About four years ago, New Land Development purchased properties at Kenilworth and Farwell Avenues on Milwaukee's East Side. Plans have now surfaced for this corner. They include a great-looking building of high end, one-room apartments and street side retail.

New Land Enterprises and Kindness Architecture have met with the immediate commercial property owners surrounding this corner that's just across from Ma Fisher's and the Kenilworth Building. The developers also have met with the general membership of the East Side Association and Business Improvement District board (Jeff Sherman is a board member).

Scott Kindness tells me that the duplexes on the corner will be razed and that "ideally they would like to break ground this spring, with a spring 2010 opening." 

New Land is looking to mainly to building housing for the many young professionals who work at Columbia St. Mary's.

"The unit designs do not foster roommate situations," says Kindness. The units range from 560 to 850 square feet and are all studios and one-bedrooms.  

There is no name for the development at this time.
