The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is issuing a request for proposals from developers interested in rehabilitating six of the unused historic buildings at the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center to provide housing for homeless veterans.
The buildings that would be used are part of the historic buildings in the Milwaukee Soldiers Home District at the VA Medical Center. They include: Building 2 – Old Main, Building 1 – Administration Building, Building 14 – Catholic Chaplains Quarters, and three smaller buildings 18, 19 and 62 – the Personal Quarters Buildings.
The buildings would be returned to service through long-term “enhanced Use Leases,” according to the proposal. The developer would take on the cost of rehabilitation and then provide housing for veterans who are homeless or who are at risk of becoming homeless.
