Regent Street could get brew pub, new apartments

A proposal on the table from Rod Ripley, owner of Lucky’s Bar & Grille, to create Lucky’s 1313 Brew Pub and banquet facility at 1313 Regent St. would give the area its first brew pub.

The site was home to the former Foreign Car Specialists shop. Ripley also has plans to build a three-story, 26-unit apartment building in a nearby parking lot, according to the Wisconsin State Journal.

The new apartment building would offer efficiencies and one- and two-bedroom units and lofts marketed to young professionals.

Ripley hopes to open the brewpub in January 2016.
