Smaller Dogs Getting Comfortable, Too

Just over a year after ground was broken, the finishing touches are being put on the Prosser Place Estates on Antigo’s north side.

Ground was broken on the complex in late fall, 2015 and within days construction will be completed on the final building.

“We’re finishing up the last building now and will have it open by Feb. 1,” Randy Jensen, site manager for S.C. Swiderski, LLC, said. “That will complete construction.”

The final building features 16 one and two-bedroom units, making a total of 88 apartments in the sprawling sixbuilding complex plus ancillary structures at Prosser Place and Charlotte Court.

“We still have lots of landscaping to do,” Jensen said. “That’s a priority in the spring.”

An open house is planned for Wednesday, Feb. 8 from 2 to 6 p.m. There will be tours and refreshments.

The units are being rented at market rates, unlike many in the community that tie rent to income guidelines. They are designed for all ages and are proving to be particularly attractive to individuals or couples who have sold homes and want a maintenance-free lifestyle.

“We are starting to fill up,” Jensen said. “We’re about where we expected to be when we did our projections for this project. We’re comfortable we will be full.”

There are some extra-special amenities as well. All the buildings are cat-friendly and one building allows dogs as well.

“We allow up to two dogs, with a total weight of 40 pounds,” Jensen said.

For the canine-impaired, that equals one mediumsized Rover or two smallish models.

“We will be building a fenced-in dog run for the tenants in the spring, Jensen said.

Current tenants include five dogs plus a handful of cats.

All the one, two and threebedroom luxury apartments 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.

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.

The project is being developed by Mosinee-based S.C. Swiderski, LLC, owned 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.
