OAK CREEK — A lakefront site in Oak Creek is going to be transformed into a residential neighborhood featuring several hundred housing units.

F Street Group has partnered with the City of Oak Creek to develop 35-acres of land along the lake into a residential neighborhood.

The new development will be called Lakeshore Commons and will be built adjacent to the city’s Lake Vista Park, north of Bender Park, and east of South Fifth Avenue, along Oak Creek’s Lake Michigan shoreline.

Lakeshore Commons will feature a variety of housing options at various prices, a clubhouse, a fitness center, an outdoor pool, walking trails, and basketball courts.

On Dec. 1, the City of Oak Creek approved F Street Group's purchase of the land. On Dec. 8, the group presented their development plans to the Oak Creek Plan Commission.

“Lakeshore Commons will be southeastern Wisconsin's premier residential development site. This new community will boast amazing views of Lake Vista Park and Lake Michigan,” F Street Group President Scott Lurie said in a statement. “Our collective vision of amenity-rich living within a self-sustained community makes this development unique and highly desirable.”
