Highland Plaza Apartments

The Highland Plaza Condominiums (built in 1924 as the Highland Plaza Apartments) is an 8-story residential building located at 2250 Highland Avenue, at the intersection of 23rd Street South.

The luxurious brick and limestone building was designed in a Beaux-Arts style by Denham, Van Keuren & Denham architects and built by the Smallman Brice Construction Company. Houston Brice became a tenant after the building opened.

The first floor and eighth-floor windows are topped with circular arches and the roof parapet is enriched with a classical dentil moulding. The H-shaped plan with large windows and nine-foot ceilings provides for light-filled apartments. The lobby is finished with marble floors and hardwood paneling.

Extensive shoring of the foundations was undertaken in advance of the construction of the nearby Highland Avenue Overpass. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. It was renovated and converted to condominiums in 1987 by the Hillmark Corporation of Madison, Wisconsin.
