On July 10, the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee celebrated the formal opening of Westlawn Gardens, an $82 million transformation of the state’s largest public housing project that has won numerous awards in the past year from regional and national observers of housing development. “Milwaukee is leading the way for building sustainable, mixed-income neighborhoods with quality housing stock that is meant to last,” said Mayor Tom Barrett. Westlawn Gardens is now fully leased and includes multifamily buildings, townhomes and single-family homes housing more than 300 residents; public and retail space; a partnership with Growing Power to make community gardens available to area residents; cutting-edge environmental and sustainability features; and innovative “healthy” homes features that make living with asthma and other disabilities easier.
