Former elementary school to be used for housing
Earlier this month, community leaders celebrated the groundbreaking and redevelopment at the former Phillis Wheatley Elementary School, which will be used for housing.
The $22 million development will include construction of a new four-story building alongside the school building that features more than 140,000 square feet.
Ald. Russell W. Stamper II said the facility will have 82 single, double and triple bedroom units.
“This groundbreaking is monumental for the rejuvenation of the 53206 ZIP code, and I am proud that we are able to start the construction process at such a historically significant site,” Stamper said in a news release.
