Sheboygan’s vibrant, available apartments key to successful city
Encore Apartments, 734 N 7th St, Sheboygan, celebrated their grand opening on Sept. 14. This marks a milestone for the City of Sheboygan. Approximately two and a half years ago, the city started the process to encourage downtown apartment development.
Prior to the recent apartments downtown, Sheboygan did not see a new apartment development for 10 years. The Encore Apartments on the former Boston Store property include 81 units with rents ranging from $900 to $1,100 a month. As of the grand opening date, Encore had approximately half of their units rented consisting of studios, one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms. The demographics of renters are primarily young professional or millennials that are employed at Acuity and Kohler Company. The goal of getting more people to live downtown, as well as encouraging young professionals to live downtown was accomplished.
