 Downtown Development

Milwaukee's renaissance has been widely noted in publications near and far - but it takes a stroll along such places as the Milwaukee Riverwalk to see the "new" downtown for yourself.  Development and redevelopment have been steady as more people rediscover the energy and excitement of an urban lifestyle coupled with premiere access to two rivers and the lakefront.  Read more

 The Park East Corridor

The Park East Corridor consists of over 60 acres, 24 of which are prime sites for redevelopment.  The properties are located within Milwaukee's downtown, in close proximity to the Milwaukee River.  Milwaukee County owns 16 acres and is currently selling their properties through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process.  For all the information you will need on the development process, visit parkeastmke.com

Transit

Milwaukee is the envy of other cities due to the ease and affordability of getting in and around the downtown.  You will spend less time in traffic and more time doing what you came here to do.  Parking is abundant, affordable and easy.  Other transit options are available and Milwaukee is banking its future on the addition of even more.  Read more
