The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs on Tuesday, February 13, announced plans to rehabilitate three additional historic buildings at the Soldiers Home – a national historic landmark district located on the grounds of Milwaukee’s Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center.

In 2021, “Old Main” and five other historic buildings on the Soldiers Home campus were renovated into housing for homeless veterans. The new project will focus on rehabilitating the campus’ Ward Memorial Theater, Soldiers Home Chapel, and the Governor’s Residence.

Under the current proposal, the VA said that the three buildings will be restored to provide over 35,000 square feet of community space and supportive services for veterans. Work is anticipated to begin in 2025, with all buildings completed in 2026.

The Alexander Company, a Wisconsin-based real estate services firm, is overseeing the financing, design, construction, and property management of developments. The firm also led the team behind the “Old Main” project, and continues to operate and manage those buildings today.
