Oconomowoc, WI – Apartments

Located at the southwest corner of CTH P and CTH Z in the City of Oconomowoc, the property is 35 acres. The site sits between two major arterials, Highway P and Highway 67. It is located within minutes of downtown Oconomowoc and 30 minutes from Milwaukee.

Over a decade ago Wangard undertook a wetland mitigation project at this site. Working with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR), brown sedimented soil along Rosenow Creek was removed, wetland soil was re-seeded, and a protective prairie buffer was planted around the wetland. A total of 0.8 acre of improved wetland was created to replace the half-acre of low-quality wetland that was filled. Projects that create new or improve existing wetlands enhance water quality, reduce soil erosion, promote biodiversity, and improve wildlife habitat.

Ten years later Wangard moved forward with developing the site into the 226 unit apartment buildings, The Preserve at Prairie Creek.
