CEDARBURG — Little has changed
since the Arrabelle apartment project architectural plans for the
former St. Francis Borgia School site were approved in July.
“Right now, it’s my understanding that the developer is currently

He also noted that the HSI Properties project still needs to submit
plans for landscaping, stormwater management and lighting, in
addition to successfully securing financing, before plans will move
A call to HSI Properties was not returned before deadline.
“It’s really a process that the developer – all developers – go
through,” Censky said. “This is fairly typical.”
The multifamily development from HSI Properties will offer 69
apartment and townhouse units and a plot for a single-family home on
the former St. Francis Borgia School site on Hamilton Road. It will
be targeted to empty-nesters, snowbirds and baby boomers, with
monthly rents ranging between $1,000 and $2,000.
The project was green-lighted in March when the Common Council
unanimously approved rezoning and land use plan amendments;
architectural plans were approved by the Plan Commission in July.
Censky also addressed local rumors that the project had somewhat
gotten bigger in the interim.
“Any significant change to a project, not just this one but any
project proposed in the city, would have to return through the
approval process,” he said. “As so, it would appear on the agendas
for those respective meetings. That hasn’t happened.”
