Historic brewery finds new life as urban neighborhood.
A wave of new construction is reshaping the former Pabst Brewery. The biggest project underway is the construction of two apartment buildings. Indiana-based Milhaus is developing the two buildings, known as Vim and Vigor, totaling 274 units. The words vim and vigor have long been associated with the Pabst brand.
One building, which will include 7,000 square-feet of retail space, 110 apartments and 130 parking spaces, is being developed on the northeast corner of N. 10th St. and W. Juneau Ave. and has reached its maximum height. The second building, for which the second floor is being framed out, is under construction at the northwest corner of N. 10th St. and W. McKinley Ave. That building will include 164 apartments and 170 parking spaces.
