MUKWONAGO - The face of Mukwonago’s Highway 83 entrance on the north side will change come fall with plan commissioners approving The Villas at Chapman Farms condo development this week, and other adjacent developments already underway.

Commissioners approved a planned united development for the multi-million-dollar subdivision on 11-acres located north of Chapman Farms Boulevard and just west of the Kwik Trip off Highway 83.

Bielinski Homes, a Waukesha developer, will present its plan to the Village Board for final approval on Tuesday at 7 p.m. in Village Hall, 440 River Crest Court.

The Villas at Chapman Farms will consist of 24 duplexes or condominiums with a total of 48 units, said Bruce Kaniewski, village planner. The ranch-style homes are approximately 1,500 square feet with two bedrooms and two baths per unit, and a communal two-car garage, according to the PUD. The assessed value of each condo unit is $225,000.

The Villas at Chapman Farms are just the first step in the overall construction of the $40 million subdivision project, with 88 single-family homes being added sometime in the next five to 10 years, Village Administrator and Economic Development Director John Weidl previously told a Freeman reporter.

The single-family homes have not yet gone before the Plan Commission, Kaniewski said.  Developers hope to break ground on the condos by fall, according to the PUD.

Construction

The large piles of dirt that folks see on the right as they’re driving down Highway 83 into the village is the Chapmans Place project, which is a six-acre mixed-use development off Chapman Farms Boulevard, said Ray Goodden vice president of Milwaukee development company, Anderson Commercial. The recently completed boulevard will connect Highway 83 to the Bielinski Homes Subdivision, and carry on into the Fairwinds subdivision.

“The road just got completed (Wednesday),” Goodden said. “So, the curb, gutter and road are all in.”

The Chapman Farms property will include Educators Credit Union, a Aurora Health Care clinic and a day care center. Goodden said a one-acre lot has yet to be spoken for, but the developers have their eyes on restaurants. Goodden expects Aurora, Educators and the day care center to break ground by the fall.

“We’re in talks with a couple of national restaurants, so that will be full,” said Goodden.

A second six-acre mixed-use development project known as the Dewey Ridge property just north of Kwik Trip on the east side of Highway 83 is expected to begin in the near future, though what this project will consist of is still unknown, he said.

As these projects start to make progress, they will begin to highlight how certain areas of the village will be viewed in the future, Goodden said.  He added that he considers the north side of Mukwonago to be residential, shopping and restaurants while the southern part of the village is industrial and manufacturing, he said.

“I think that’s the shopping and eating area for sure,” Goodden said. “There’s a lot of fast food up there, there’s the grocery store, now you have health care and the village is getting its first credit union and a large day care center.”

Goodden expects Aurora, Educators and the day care center to break ground by the fall.
