Two downtown Waukesha apartment projects – one nearly complete and the other to be built – will be discussed by the city's plan commission Wednesday, April 12.

According to a preliminary meeting agenda, commissioners will review plans for façade changes to the Prairieville Apartments, at 260 South St., and a certified survey map combining two properties at the site of the future Clearpoint apartment complex, just west of the corner at Main and Barstow streets.

The Prairieville development was not constructed as approved, according to planning documents, so changes to the first floor of the complex have been proposed to align with the previously approved plans.

Those changes include the addition of storefront glass and more architectural details such as awnings and additional masonry, the documents said.

Clearpoint project

City staff has recommended approval of a new certified survey map for the Clearpoint apartment project, which the commission approved in September. The map would combine two lots on the project site.

According to planning documents, Clearpoint will have 56 one-bedroom units and eight two-bedroom units atop two levels of indoor parking. The parking – 98 covered spaces – will be situated in the lower level and on the first floor, with residences on the second through fifth floors. It will be built in part with $1.3 million in public funds.

Rents will range from $1,200 to $1,800 a month, according to developer Marcus Felker.

Clearpoint is the latest in a recent spate of apartment developments proposed for or already constructed downtown. The Main Street Apartments, immediately west of the Clearpoint development, started the trend in the late 1990s.
