School Turned Apartment Building

The former West Side School in Sturgeon Bay has been converted into the Sawyer School Lofts apartment building, and an open house was held Aug. 17 at the 17 W. Pine St. address. 

Apartments are now available for rent, ranging from a one-bedroom, one-bathroom starting at $685 per month, to a two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom for $1,255 per month.

Northpointe Development converted the long-vacant school property into apartments with the assistance of $1.4 million in Community Block Grant funding contributed by the County of Door. As a condition of that funding, 51% of the units must be rented at a rate that’s affordable for low- to moderate-income families. The remainder may be rented at market rates.
