Downtown Waukesha could be gaining a 22-unit apartment building.
Prairieville Apartments are planned for 831 N. Grand Ave., with two stories being added to the one-story parking garage currently at the location.
Rental prices for the apartments were estimated in July at $850 for a one-bedroom unit and $1,100 for a two-bedroom unit.
Mayor Jeff Scrima was opposed to the project when it gained preliminary plan approval in July, calling the architectural design “flat” and “boring.” The mayor said at the July Plan Commission meeting he would prefer to see the property utilized as a banquet hall or green space.
“We need to be selective when we say ‘Yes’ to apartment projects in this city,” Scrima said in July. “We don’t have to say ‘Yes’ to every one that comes along. … I don’t see that this would be an asset to the downtown in the long run.”
The Waukesha Plan Commission will take up the final approval at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.
