McShane Selected as General Contractor for 203-Unit Bishops Woods Affordable Housing Community in Brookfield, Wisconsin

ROSEMONT, IL - McShane Construction Company was selected by repeat client Lincoln Avenue Communities to build Bishops Woods, a 203-unit affordable housing residence in Brookfield, Wisconsin.

“We’re proud to partner with Lincoln Avenue Communities on another affordable housing community,” commented Alison Gorham, Director of Wisconsin Market at McShane. “Bishops Woods is a unique development that offers both traditional apartments and live/work units that will allow residents to have a business in their home.”

Located on a 3.7-acre site at 350 Bishops Way, the development will feature a podium-style building with four stories of wood framing atop a two-story underground parking garage. The building’s façade will integrate an attractive mix of Hardie lap and panel siding with brick veneer.

Affordable at 40 to 80 percent of area median income (AMI), units will be offered in one- to three-bedroom floor plans. Unit features will include luxury vinyl plank flooring, stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops in the kitchens and bathrooms, and select units will also offer balconies. Eight live/work units will be available for residents who wish to have an office suite or studio with a separate exterior entrance.

Tenant amenities will include a clubroom, fitness center, outdoor grill area, and a playground.

The project was designed to meet Wisconsin Green Built Home Standards and will incorporate a 200kW A/C solar array on the rooftop along with high-efficiency electric heat pump systems.

Completion of Bishops Woods is scheduled for December 2025. Knothe & Bruce Architects is the architect of record.

McShane is currently under construction with two additional affordable housing projects for Lincoln Avenue Communities. The firm is building The Derby Apartments, a 70-unit residence, and Canyons, a 60-unit residence, in Madison, Wisconsin.
