General Contractor: Gorman & Company



The Alexander Lofts is the historical preservation of what was originally the Hills Department Store building. Located in the Historic Mitchell Street district, the area is surrounded by commercial buildings designated by the city of Milwaukee of architectural and historical significance. Advanced Restoration cleaned the exterior masonry to remove decades of staining and debris. Bricks were replaced, damaged limestone was repaired, and all elevations were tuckpointed with materials approved by the historical society to preserve its character. The building now houses 60 total apartment units, with a new public library on the first floor.
