A mixed-income community.
Work is expected to finish this fall on an unusual housing development on the East Side, near Columbia-St. Mary’s and Whole Foods. The 54-unit Greenwich Park Apartments, opening in early 2017, will include a rare mix of subsidized, rent-restricted and market rate apartments. “The goal is to create a fully mixed-income community,” says Mark Angelini, president of Mercy Housing Lakefront, a division of Mercy Housing, a national affordable housing company with Catholic roots. Matthew Desmond, whose book Evicted reported on housing troubles in Milwaukee, will deliver the keynote at a fundraiser for Lakefront on Nov. 2 (more at mercyhousing.org/2016liveinhope).
