CEDARBURG — The proposed $22-million project for the
corner of Sheboygan Road and Highway 60 received
unanimous rezoning approval from the Cedarburg Common
Council Monday night, though council members noted it
was just one step in a long process.
“This project is really designed as a high-end project,”
said developer Duey Stroebel, who noted that unit rents
will be between approximately $1,200 and $2,000 per
month. “We are looking at the ‘renter-by-choice’ market
– the empty nesters and the young professionals who
aren’t interested in home ownership.”
Stroebel also added that there is a demand in the
marketplace for this type of development.
believe the last time a higher-end apartment complex was
developed in Cedarburg was more than 20 years ago,” he
proposed, the project will encompass 18.7 acres and
include 12 16-unit apartment buildings for a total of
192 units, along with a clubhouse accessible by all
residents. As planned, each apartment will have a
separate entrance. Stroebel added that the design of the
project includes four elevations that give the buildings
a more residential feel.
also noted that he has had a letter of support for the
project from Cornerstone Development, the developer of
the adjacent Glen and Cedar Creek.
“We’ve worked to successfully address and meet some
conditions of concern and Cornerstone is in support of
our project,” he said.
Council members asked what Stroebel’s timeline would be
for complete build out of the project and what his
intent will be once it is complete.
“Once the project starts, we’re probably looking at two
years from start to finish, with the clubhouse also
being built right away as that’s an amenity people are
looking for,” he said. “And I do plan to own the
development – I don’t really ever sell anything. I
imagine my kids will own this someday.”
Public comment at the hearing to rezone the parcels from
High Density Residential Housing to a temporary
residential use and then to PUD Multiple-Family
Residential District/ Planned Unit Development was
limited to a single resident who questioned the traffic
impact the project would have on the area.
“Sheboygan Road is classified as an arterial road; it’s
intended to pass traffic through,” said City Planner Jon
Censky. “This plan does make sense in that respect as we
expect most of the traffic to flow north to Highway 60.”
can definitely address the speed limit issue on
Sheboygan Road, but some of it is out of our control and
under the jurisdiction of the county,” said Mayor Kip
Kinzel. “It’s also a question that can be brought up
with the police chief. But it will certainly be looked
at as part of this process.”
