Overview / Details

Barclay Lofts is an adaptive reuse of the Patton Paint Company building, located on the intersection of South Barclay Street and East Oregon Street. Constructed between 1900 and 1948, the building and the Patton Paint Company were acquired by the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company in 1920, along with many other buildings during the early 1900s. Barclay Lofts itself represents the “Golden Age” in manufacturing for Milwaukee and was designed by Kirchhoff and Rose, architects for many of the most iconic buildings in the city.

Barclay Lofts will be converted into 115 residential apartment homes with 64 surface parking spaces. The unit mix incorporates studios and one-bedroom layouts to support the demand in the area.

Located just south and southwest of the Historic Third Ward, Walker’s Point lack of gentrification is part of what attracts artists, craftsmen, other residents and businesses to the area. Walker’s Point is experiencing a renaissance, with its authenticity of an old industrial Milwaukee neighborhood.
