New Walker’s Point apartments near Reed Street Yards reach 95 percent occupancy

The Brix Lofts Apartments building in Milwaukee’s Walker’s Point neighborhood has reached 95 percent occupancy four months after opening this summer. That lease-up of the 98-unit building is another reflection of the strong downtown apartment market, and attractiveness of Walker’s Point. Brix is a former industrial building previously used to manufacture candy bars at 408 W. Florida St. It is south of the Reed Street Yards water technology business park, and next to the Iron Horse Hotel. Contractors recently completed a parking structure between the Brix and Iron Horse, said Dustin Sydorowicz, property manager at Siegel-Gallagher Management Co.
