SHEBOYGAN — Affordable, yet desirable—that's the gist of the City of Sheboygan's recently opened Badger State Lofts.

Affordable housing continues to be one of the ongoing issues highlighted in the city. In 2018, the city received more than $1.5 million in State Housing Tax Credits to create Badger State Lofts and the Wasserman Apartments to help combat the issue.

About Badger State Lofts

Badger State Lofts opened for lease in Sept. 2020. As of the end of Feb. 2021, more than 80 of the 118 units are expected to be filled.

Remodeled from the former tannery complex, the loft-style apartments retain many of the building's original features and character.

The complex offers a variety of floor plans ranging from one to four bedrooms. Rent ranges from $628 to $1,165 depending upon the floor plan selected.

See our galleries below of two units:

The apartment amenities include on-site community laundry and workout facilities, a business/common room and assigned parking and underground parking available. Water, sewer and trash utilities are provided.

Badger State, along with a few other complexes in Sheboygan, has limits per household for residents set by U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Under the program, monthly rent is calculated by the income of the overall household. For example, if a two-person household brings in $25,700 per year, their rent for a two-bedroom unit would be $768. If the household makes more at $30,840, the rent would be $865 for the unit.
