Today, Heartland Housing, a non-profit organization that is part of Chicago-based Heartland Alliance, and community partners gather to celebrate the upcoming construction of St. Anthony’s Apartments. The former St. Anthony’s Hospital will be renovated into 60 units of permanent supportive housing. The new St. Anthony’s Apartments are expected to open in October 2018.

The historic building at 1004 N. 10th St. was recently placed on the National Register of Historic Places for its place in Milwaukee’s African-American history. Heartland’s rehabilitation will repurpose the building into 60 modern apartments, onsite property management and supportive services offices, and new space for partner Capuchin Community Services’ health clinic and homeless outreach programs.

The project will be financed with multiple sources including Low Income Housing Tax Credits and federal and state historic preservation tax credits. Other lead partners in the development include the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority, Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, Milwaukee County and the City of Milwaukee, along with funding partners Enterprise Community Investment, US Bank, Zilber Family Foundation, the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco and Capuchin Community Services.
