WESTLAWN NEIGHBORHOOD REVITALIZATION

The Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee (HACM) is redeveloping Westlawn, formerly Wisconsin’s largest public housing development.  First developed in the 1950s, the 75-acre development on Milwaukee's northwest side has provided critical affordable housing to a bustling city and is now being revitalized for 21st century housing and community needs.
