This is one of four options for a side-by-side condominium proposed by Janssen Bruckner LLC as part of a new 66-unit development in Oak Creek.

A new condominium development with 66 side-by-side residences got a positive initial recommendation in Oak Creek.

Janssen Bruckner LLC are looking to build ranch-style single-family spaces in 33 buildings next to Abendschein Park at 641 and 819R E. Drexel Ave. which will require a zoning change. The property is currently zoned as single-family residential district, flood fringe and floodway. It will need to be zoned as two-family residential to accommodate the project.

The development is called Stonebrook on the Park, according to the application. There are four condominium models ranging from 1,500 to 1,700 square feet built of fiber cement, pressboard siding, stone and shingles. Units have attached two-car garages.

Plans also show three single-family lots on the site.

City Planner Kari Papelbon said a condo plat and master landscaping plan will be needed for the project going forward. Additionally, there are wetlands on the property and the developer will need permits from the Department of Natural Resources for filling, she said.

“Given its incredible location next the Abendshein Park and close vicinity to Drexel Town Square we are confident that these units will be in high demand,” said Ryan Janssen and Nicole Bruckner of Janssen Bruckner LLC in a letter included in the application.

The letter also said market research indicated “there is no product like this available in Oak Creek.”

At least not yet.

CR Devco LLC presented a somewhat similar concept for properties at 1933 and 2231 W. Puetz Road, 8834R S. 13th St. and 8950 S. 20th St. in October 2021.

That development concept included 24 ranch-style buildings with four-, six- and eight-unit buildings for a total of 136 possible units, which were listed as a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts. Concept plans showed both single and two-car garages, a walking path and potential dog park.
