CG Schmidt will host a ground-breaking ceremony at the historic Racine Horlick Malted Milk Complex’s 2200 building April 7 to celebrate the beginning of work on the second mixed- and adaptive-reuse apartment building at the site in Racine, Wisconsin.
Headquarters at Horlick will provide 86 market-rate and affordable residential units in the City of Racine.
The ground-breaking ceremony will feature remarks from representatives of J. Jeffers, CG Schmidt Construction, the City of Racine and AG Architecture
With buildings dating back to 1875, construction began on the original 2100 building in August 2020 and is nearly complete, providing an opportunity for a revamp of the neighboring 2200 Northwestern Ave. building within the complex.
The 2200 Building was used as the original Horlick headquarters office building and features a large clocktower. State and federal historical tax credits will help J. Jeffers to finance the $40 million Phase One of the campus project.
Surrounded by aging brick and climbing ivy, several key members of the Historic Horlick redevelopment team will break ground and celebrate the beginning of a key revitalization project for the city of Racine.
