River House Apartments

River House Apartments • Milwaukee, WI

Project consists of a 376,000 sf apartment building with 240 units that consist of four stories of wood framed apartments over two levels of below grade parking. The structure is supported on steel piles and the lowest level slab is a structurally supported concrete slab due to very poor soils. The structure is built into a hill that resulted in two stories of unbalanced soil loads that were resisted with battered piles.
