Three new apartment projects would bring nearly 200 units to Kenosha

Several large-scale apartment developments planned in different areas of the city are moving through the review process, including a two-part project in the Downtown corridor.

The Kenosha Plan Commission on Thursday reviewed the latest sets of plans for the 101-unit Simmons Terrace, 5939 7th Ave., and the 59-unit Theater Terrace, 5929 6th Ave.

Additionally, the panel advanced the 30-unit Arbor Apartments project at 1915 30th Ave.

Illinois-based Woodview Group, which developed the 68-unit Lake Terrace Apartments at 5900 4th Ave., is the company behind Simmons Terrace and Theater Terrace.

During Thursday’s review, commissioners combed through preliminary details of the Simmons and Theater projects as a precursor to approving a site plan, land rezoning, conditional-use permit and a number of other approvals that will be required before work gets underway.

The Simmons development would take the place of an existing BMO Harris Bank branch and a small commercial and residential building to the north. Both buildings would be razed. The Theater project would go on two parcels — one currently vacant; the other, a two-story multi-family residential building.

Ald. Bill Siel, who represents the area of the residential projects, said he supports the plans presented.
