UWM historic Alumni Dwelling renovations will want state acceptance

University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's former Alumni House has been sold and is being converted back to a private home.

Renovations to a historic former mansion sold by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee will need to have approval from the Wisconsin Historic Culture, in accordance to a doc recently filed with metropolis officers.

UWM declared Jan. 6 it had offered the Alumni Residence to Milwaukee small business operator and philanthropist Andy Nunemaker for $1.8 million.

Nunemaker will renovate the setting up into a personal home — its unique goal just before remaining used by UWM as a dormitory and workplaces.

The 3-tale, 18,000-square-foot developing, 3230 E. Kenwood Blvd., is recognized for its Tudor Revival architectural fashion.

It is designated as historic by the metropolis. That implies any exterior function are unable to be completed without having approval from the Milwaukee Historic Preservation Fee.

The point out, in selling Alumni Property, incorporated a conservation easement presented to the Wisconsin Historic Culture.
