A new apartment building is now open in Midtown, welcoming its first batch of residents for move-in last week. Woodward West, a $60 million joint venture between the Platform and Queen Lilian, is currently 72 percent leased for its 204 apartments.
20 percent of those apartments will be leased to those making 80 percent of the Area Median Income.
Current rents on its website list market-rate apartments starting at $999 for a studio up to $3,100 for a two bed, two bath.
The development, which sits at Woodward and Stimson, across from Brush Park, also has 25,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The first tenant should be announced shortly.
According to a release, 29 tenants moved in over the holiday weekend, with another 20 set to move in this upcoming weekend.
The development includes amenities such as a rooftop deck, a fitness room with saunas, and office space for work-from-home residents who want to work outside of their apartments. It also has electric vehicle charging stations, 84 surface parking spots, plus parking available for a fee at a structure close by. Located on a number of transit routes, there's also storage for 140 bikes.
Queen Lillian is a venture between Chris Jackson and James Jenkins Jr., who have worked on projects over the years such as the DMC Heart Hospital, Ford Field, Cass Tech, and the Cobo Hall renovation. The Platform has led many developments over the past six years, mainly in the New Center and Milwaukee Junction neighborhoods. Most recently, the group is working on a redevelopment of the Studebaker Building in Milwaukee Junction.
