Transforming Historic Garfield
Avenue Elementary School
[Milwaukee Business News]
Maures Development Group LLC, led by Melissa Goins, has eyed the closed Garfield Avenue Elementary property in Bronzeville since 2014. She recently partnered with Josh Jeffers of J. Jeffers & Co. on a project to convert the former school building into 30 affordable apartments. The third-floor gym will be kept intact and used as community space.
In January, redevelopment of the building finally began with a two-phase, $16.6 million project Goins believes will be catalytic for the neighborhood.
