Check out the story in the Milwaukee Business Journal. From it …
A $36.7 million development to bring affordable apartments to the former Bucyrus-Erie campus in South Milwaukee won a $2.5 million grant award from Milwaukee County.
It becomes the fourth affordable housing project in suburban Milwaukee County to receive an allocation of American Rescue Plan Act money this year. The project at the Bucyrus campus would renovate two office buildings to create 92 new apartments, 82 of which would be for families with annual incomes of $50,000 or less. Nineteen of those affordable apartments will rent for $650 a month, for example.
Milwaukee developers Scott Crawford Inc. and J. Jeffers & Co. are leading the project, which is under city plan review now.
“Our teams bring a well-defined reimagination to the former Bucyrus campus, and we’re proud to be building upon existing neighborhood assets in South Milwaukee,” said Scott Crawford Inc. president Que El-Amin.
The developers’ overall plan involves three unused office buildings at the Bucyrus campus. A third office building that includes the former company employee cafeteria is to become commercial space.

I think the affordable apartments is wrong in many ways and the city should reconsider other options.
