Milwaukee Condos

The second phase of The North End project added two
unique buildings to complete this luxury apartment home
neighborhood in Milwaukee’s hot Park East corridor.
Portrait, the smaller of the two buildings provides five
floors and 55 luxury apartment homes above the first floor
common space. Silhouette is the larger of the two new
buildings and provides six floors of luxury apartment living
with 100 units.

UNIQUE REQUIREMENTS/SOLUTIONS
The architectural design of this project called for many
unique mull configurations, some with 4” and 6” spread
mulls. Eight foot tall narrow sliding doors with direct set
transoms were chosen to provide the most of the views of
the river, the courtyard, and the Milwaukee Skyline.

The architect chose two different Feature Colors to
complement the various exterior design elements used in
each of the buildings, Charcoal Gray for Portrait and Dove
Gray for Silhouette.

COMMENTS FROM PEOPLE INVOLVED
Robert Arend, senior Project Manager with Ray Hintz GC
explained “The windows are a prominent design element
on this project. Throughout the selection process, close
attention was given to the performance of the product and
the capabilities of the support team. The quality of
construction, available options and the personal attention
provided by Windsor and Millwork Distributors were keys
in choosing Windsor.

Large expanses of glass required integrating the
configuration of the windows into the design. Windsor and
Millwork Distributors were available early and often in the
design process to offer solutions to these unique
challenges. Where required, field applied spread mulls
were used to create the feel and look of a continuous wall
of windows while concealing key structural components.
