Apr 30, 2014 06:07PM
Construction is underway on an environmentally friendly living space, Sage on Jackson, which will be certified according to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design standards. Upon completion, slated for this September, the 20-unit residential building will feature 30 parking spots, a green roof, a rainwater cistern, charging points for electric cars and a gymnasium made of reclaimed materials. Building materials include extra-thick insulation and permeable cement, which allows water from precipitation and other sources to pass through, thereby reducing the runoff and enhancing groundwater recharge.
The apartments offer attractive city views, a 20-kilowatt solar array, geothermal heat and air conditioning, quartz countertops, LED lighting, Wisconsin maple and bamboo flooring, custom cabinets, balconies, in-unit laundry, recessed electric fireplaces, a workout room, a meeting room and a lounge.
According to Mike O’Connor, founder and principal of Dominion Properties, the development increases area density and provides a positive addition to the streetscape, with careful consideration given to every design detail to maximize efficiency and reduce wasted space and energy consumption. The property is conveniently located near shopping and nightlife, as well as prominent Milwaukee businesses such as Manpower, Northwestern Mutual Life, the Milwaukee School of Engineering, the Riverwalk and the Brady Street neighborhood.
Location: 1509 N. Jackson St., Milwaukee. For more information, call 414-406-8888 or visit Dominion-Properties.com/Development/SageOnJackson.
