Welcome to Brass Works Apartments, an affordable loft-style apartment community located in Downtown Delavan. Originally home to the George W. Borg Corporation, this beautiful historic factory was designed by Holsman & Holsman Architects (Chicago) in 1943. The Borg Corporation played a major role in World War II by producing ammunition components including fuzes, sights and similar instruments. Today, the buildings are being converted into high-tech, high-style loft apartments with original details including exposed timbers, larger factory windows and great ceiling heights. All in a great location – within walking distance of Downtown Delavan.
The financial assistance we received to build Brass Works Apartments was used to reduce the overall cost of our project, allowing us to charge lower rents to residents who qualify under WHEDA’s program.
