Sold: Large former Pabst Brewing bottling building to become hotel, student housing

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- A large former Pabst Brewing bottling building has been sold.

Blue Ribbon Management LLC bought the building for $2.25 million.

The building will be converted into a hotel and student housing. The redevelopment should be complete by the summer of 2016, with people able to move in during the fall.

Last year, the city approved plans for the building to have 150 housing units and up to 438 beds -- most of which are for international college students attending area universities.
