The newly developed Blatz Condominiums on Highland Avenue and Broadway are now completed. What was built in the 1800s as a building for the former Blatz Brewery became the site of Downtown’s first industrial-to-residential conversion when it was refurbished into The Blatz Apartments in 1988.
Now, as a joint venture between Milwaukee’s Ruvin Development, Inc. and Fiduciary Real Estate Development Inc., the Blatz Condos comprise 169 studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units, half of which have sold in three months.
“The speed at which the condos are selling is simply unheard of in the real estate industry,” says co-developer Rick Ruvin. “Some might even call it Milwaukee’s fastest-selling condo development.”
