This structure was built in 1915 in Milwaukee’s Walkers Point neighborhood. Square D Corporation used the building initially before it became a factory and warehouse for Junior House, a ladies clothing manufacturer. Junior House saw its peak of success in the late 1950’s and 1960s and later would change its name to JH Collectibles. It hit harder times late in the century, liquidating in 1996. The building stood empty for several years until developers purchased it and gave it new life as Junior House Lofts. It now houses 50 apartments with what has been called an nostalgic “industrial chic” vibe; concrete floors, high ceilings, exposed interior columns and large windows.
