MERRILL - Merrill has a new housing option for low-income residents.
The Merrill Housing Authority and developers held a grand opening Friday for Stonebridge apartments, 307 W. Main St. The 38-unit building is part of a $16 million effort to revamp affordable housing in Merrill.
MERRILL - Finding the right apartment can be hard.
Many times, it's either too expensive or too run-down.
The city of Merrill decided to change that with a new project which will expand housing options in the area. The project began in 2015. It's the first phase of a $16 million three-phase housing project.
The Stonebridge Apartment ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Friday. The public could come see the apartments themselves.
MERRILL - The third-floor light switches work. So do the air conditioners. And the appliances are brand-new, just as Howard Othmer expected.
"I feel confident walking away from this building when it's done," Othmer said. "Very, very well built."
Tuesday morning, the Horizon Construction Group general superintendent walked through Merrill's newest low-income housing project, which rises three stories above Main Street along the banks of the Prairie River.
ELM GROVE — A 75-unit senior apartment complex being proposed by Horizon Development Group Inc. for the village.
The project, known as Elm Grove Heights, would be located at 13040 W. Bluemound Road near the intersection of Elm Grove and Bluemound roads.
Elm Grove Heights would be a four-story apartment building with a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments for seniors who are looking to live independently, said Phillip Schultz, managing partner of Horizon Development Group.
It may be cold outside, but the crews on the jobsite never quit. News 12 visited Stone Bridge in Merrill to show the progress of the walls going up. This project currently has framed in two floors, and is planning to have framing complete by April 16, 2018. Prior to the framing happen, the foundation was laid in the middle of a Wisconsin winter using current building methods! This project overlooks the Prairie River, and will be a wonderful addition to the west side of Merrill. Park Place Towers are set to go to bidding soon. Stonebridge is set to be complete on September 4, 2018!
