Mandel Group, a national builder and developer headquartered in Milwaukee, has developed or transacted more than $1.5 billion of residential and commercial real estate since its founding in 1991. The firm has built a diverse multifamily portfolio of urban and suburban properties of more than 4,000 apartment and condominium homes in Milwaukee and its suburbs; downtown St. Louis; the Minneapolis suburb of Eagan, Minn.; Waukee, Iowa, a Des Moines, Iowa, suburb; and Overland Park, Kansas, a suburb of Kansas City, Kan.

The West Living was developed as part of the company’s master-planned, mixed-use community called The Market at Six Points, according to BizTimes, a Milwaukee business news site. The company was selected by the city of West Allis in 2016 to develop land on National Avenue, west of 66th Street and Six Points Crossing. Mandel has also built a 30,000-square-foot medical office and clinic property in the area and is planning more residential properties.
