To the south of Wisconsin Avenue, the housing stock is more modest in character, reflecting the economic status of the working class residents who had jobs in the adjacent Menomonee Valley. The houses have also sustained a greater degree of alteration so there are fewer properties eligible for historic status located here. The housing stock here dates from the 1880s to the 1920s.

In summary, the Avenues West Redevelopment Plan Area is a microcosm of residential, commercial, educational and institutional development from the 1880s to the 1920s. This was a neighborhood that prospered in the 1880s and experienced renewal and building through the 1920s. Not even Milwaukee’s East Side had the rich variety of 19th century architectural styles that could compare to this Near West Side area. The buildings with historic status and those eligible for historic status enhance the character of the district, and add value to the neighborhood. It is recommended that buildings with historic status or eligibility for historic status will not be razed. Likewise, it is recommended that efforts be made to preserve original features that remain on buildings that have otherwise been sided over with aluminum and vinyl. Such details as widow hoods, dentil moldings, original porches, and original windows all add character and help to give scale, value and authenticity to the neighborhood. Preserving such details will encourage and help guide future owners in the sensitive renovations/restorations of the buildings.

  1. Existing Zoning

This redevelopment area is primarily zoned Multi-Family Residential and Local Business. The (LB2) zoning description allows for the principal uses proposed in this renewal plan for a "SoHi" Main Street District. The various (RM4) (RM5) (RM6) (RM7),(RO2) (RT3) (RT4) (RS4) (RS5) residential zoning descriptions allow for residential uses that support and maintain a stable tax base in the surrounding neighborhood. However the mix of single-family, multi-family and commercial uses that has occurred in recent years requires a greater degree of design control to ensure that the land use objectives and intent of this Plan are met. Particular areas that need to be addressed are landscape code compliance, parking lot design, context-sensitive architectural design, and design to ensure compatibility between uses that vary in intensity.

The existing zoning is shown on Map No. 5 - Existing Zoning Map, attached to this Plan.

  1. Standards of Population Density

Targeted population density for this neighborhood is provided in the City of Milwaukee Code of Ordinances for residential uses. This Plan does not recommend land use(s) that exceed this targeted density.

  1. Land Coverage and Building Density

These objectives shall be achieved by adhering to provisions contained within the Milwaukee Code of Ordinances and urban design guidelines for building placement and site design.

  1. Present and Potential Equalized Value for Property Tax Purposes

The Present and Potential Equalized Value for Property Tax Purposes is shown in Exhibit B – Table of Value for Property Tax Purposes, attached to this Plan.
