Is there a rumor you've heard that you would like to track down? Is there something in the city — like playground equipment or a pothole — that needs to be fixed? Rick Romano answers some of the mysteries of life in Wauwatosa and helps solve everyday problems.

What types of apartments are under construction on River's Bend Lane?

Issue: A reader asked about the residential construction located south of Walnut St. between the police station and city buildings housing the recycling center and maintenance operations. He wants to know what types of apartments are being built. "I cannot find any information on the Internet," he wrote.

Status: The latest construction project in an evolving new neighborhood includes the construction of two buildings of market-rate apartments, said Ald. Cheryl Berdan. The residences will be spread between two buildings, which sit in an area among senior subsidized housing and a senior assisted living facility.

"Originally, there was talk of including retail, but I don't know how that would work in that area," Belkin said.

The neighborhood has attracted people who want to live in the city, Belkin said.

"People want to move to Tosa because of the expansion of the research park and the medical facilities," Belkin said.

The city sold the land in 2007 to Brookfield-based developer Helmut Toldt, who worked with the city while phasing in the various pieces of construction.

The city's development department did not provide further details, and repeated calls to the developer were not returned.
