Prosser Place Estates Take Shape On North Side, Fill A Niche For Newer Apartments
The first in a series of sparkling apartments, featuring the latest in design details and amenities, is now open on Antigo’s north side.
As construction continues on the site off Prosser Avenue, couples and families are moving into the inaugural building—one of six—that make up Prosser Place Estates.
The rentals are filling up, Randy Jensen, site manager, said.
Jensen’s office is located in a model two-bedroom, ground floor unit. He said visitors and tenants have been commenting on the building exteriors and color palettes, the updated fixtures, flooring and other details.
Everyone loves the location, he added. People are telling us that Antigo needed some more newer, updated apartments.
The project is being developed by S.C. Swiderski, LLC and, when completed, will total 88 one, two and three bedroom luxury apartments. All include appliances, in-unit laundry, spacious rooms, walk-in closets, individual entrances, garage, and private deck or patio.
An unusual amenity for northern Wisconsin is the inclusion of all utilities, including heat. That, according to job superintendent Tim Koth, is made possible by the ventilation systems installed in each of the buildings.
Rates range from $685 a month for the smallest, 686 square feet, one-bedroom unit up to $895 a month for the largest, 1,200 square foot three-bedroom apartment. Cats are permitted for an additional $25 per month and it will be a paradise for them, since dogs are not allowed.
Jensen said 11 units are available now, with the second building coming on line Sept. 1 and the third by Oct. 1. The project is expected to be completed by Jan. 1
Koth provided a few statistics that illustrate the scope of the project. The site covers 10 1/2 acres, with over six acres devoted to green space. Over 330,000 linear feet of 2x6s and 2x4s make up the six buildings and assorted garages. That’s equivalent to over 62 miles of boards.
It’s going smoothly and we’re ahead of schedule, Koth said. That’s always a plus.
The construction site is buzzing with activity, providing interesting viewing for the new tenants already ensconced on their balconies.
Koth said there are usually 25 or more workmen on the job, up to 60 or 70 depending on what trades are in which buildings.
Based in Mosinee and owned solely by Shane and Sheila Swiderski, the company controls its own residential and commercial development, construction, maintenance and property management and also houses its own maintenance department for quick response to repair concerns.
Swiderski developments stretch from Eagle River and Rice Lake on the north to Waupaca and Wisconsin Rapids in the south, with many centered in the Wausau area. Future plans will extend its reach to the Madison and Eau Claire markets
We build apartments all over the state, and everything we build pretty much fills up immediately, Koth said. There is a huge demand.
Koth and Jensen both stressed Swiderski’s commitment to their projects and their clients.
We are new to the community and are looking forward to developing a relationship here, Jensen said. We want to create nice, safe places for people to live and be comfortable.
‘The big thing for us, he said, is making sure our tenants are happy.
Crews are continuing work on the new Prosser Place Estates,
an expansive apartment complex on Antigo’s north side.
