F Street Development Group engaged Altius Building Company to manage the construction of a new multifamily development in Brown Deer. After the Village’s Department of Public Works vacated their former operations, F Street and the Village identified the site for additional housing units and a community gathering space. The GreenLink Residences redevelopment included the complete demolition of the existing DPW building as well as construction of three new buildings. The buildings feature a beer garden (Public House 55 Taproom) as well as two, multi-story multifamily buildings – 134 units total all within the heart of the original downtown village. Working collaboratively with the Village of Brown Deer was F Street Development (Milwaukee) as the owner and developer as well as RINKA+ (Milwaukee) as the designer and Altius Building Company (Milwaukee) as the construction manager.
“The GreenLink Residences and Public House 55 Taproom & Beer Garden Project was created and realized by F Street Development Group (FSDG) in response to several needs identified in the Village of Brown Deer’s Community Master Plan. This included a new community square and greenspace, an event pavilion, taproom and beer garden to serve as a gathering place for the general public and an amenity for the residents of the two (2) GreenLink Residences apartment buildings. The apartment buildings offer a mix of unit types and amenities that include easy access to the Oak Leaf / Brown Deer Trail System, a clubroom, fitness center, outdoor pool, and sun deck, that were all designed with a contemporary aesthetic and planned to complement its surroundings, foster tenant diversity and suit active lifestyles.”
