The Annex – KTGY Architecture + Planning designing 140-bed student-housing development for University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh


August 14, 2017

The Chicago office of KTGY Architecture + Planning last week unveiled the design for Annex 71, a 140-unit residential community developed by Indianapolis-based Annex Student Living. Currently under construction, the development is located a quarter mile from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh campus on the 400 block of Marion Road in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, overlooking the Fox River.

The Annex development team rezoned the site – formerly home to Lamico Inc., a manufacturer of wooden crutches – from industrial to residential in April of 2017. The new residential use is in keeping with the evolution of the Fox River area, which has seen an influx of apartment development in recent years because of the riverfront location and proximity to the UWO campus.

Residences at Annex 71, which will range from 500 to 1,300 square feet, comprise a total of 310 bedrooms. Floor plans include 60 one-bedroom units, 35 two-bedroom units and 45 four-bedroom suite-style apartments, with private baths in each bedroom. Planned to appeal to students and young professionals, each of the apartments will be fully furnished and include in-unit laundry.
