@AJR Journal What is more interesting is the Breakwaters response to that Milwaukee Magazine article that they just put out in their Weekly Update... very very strange.. Find that it is odd.

Personally I have no problem with the building itself (except the "pedestal") and it appears its sales have been much better than other recent projects.

@TRR The Palomar just wan't the right project for the site.

Great view of "The Edge"

Go to the corner of E. Land Place and N. Marshall Street.
Gorgeous view of "The Edge".
It is nice to see construction still going on there.

Naw, the Aloft is West Side of the river on actual Park East land. It's between McKinley, 3rd and Juneau, across from the Sidney Hih. The Pfister redevelopment is further along.

Latitude - I'm not personally too into the design, but... underground parking, ground floor retail, rental units...
(I apologize for the low quality of these photos)

Location (again, sorry about the rough outline)


Project

Oh it looks like I need to get up and take a couple of pics of latitude... moving along. Here's Corcoran Lofts going up in the Third Ward.

Corcoran Lofts and context

New dorm project on North Ave.



St. Mary's expansion (a bit hard to see, but it's the giant white and gray growth hiding behind the tree)



A bit of context for the Latitude project

Thanks for the extensive update! I love all the new development in Milwaukee right now! The city is getting so filled in. The area around North Ave is getting really nicely filled out and certainly has the critical mass of night life and shopping to attract a strong, vibrant, collection of denser housing around it.

Thanks Nowhereman! I definitely agree with you on North Ave. In particular, I would love to see some quality development at the current site of the Qdoba parking lot along Prospect across from Alterra and the former Prospect Mall. Maybe in the process it could even subsume that oddly suburban Qdoba into ground-floor retail.

Excellent updates. Urban - The first few pictures you posted of the Third Ward remind me of the Bronx. Impressive density, for sure. I'll be in Milwaukee this weekend and am looking forward to checking out some of these projects.

Some renders of the UWM development on North Ave. (Cambridge Commons) with accompanying descriptions taken from UWM's Facebook page for its residence halls:

"Cambridge Commons is actually 3 separate buildings, connected with interior walkways. The two shorter buildings will have green roofs."




"Cambridge Commons is U-Shaped building, much like RiverView. The interior of the "U" will be patio/study/socializing space, and a lawn area for recreation. The lawn also reduces rain water runoff from the site into the river."

Went for a walk today...

East Side



Looking south on Farwell Ave.




St. Mary's




Whole Foods (I know this is a little older, but this has entirely changed the dynamic of the NW corner of North Ave. and Prospect Ave.)


Across the street (not amazing, but formerly an abandoned gas station surrounded by a chain-link fence)


...and new credit union...

^ Couldn't agree more. Thanks for all the awesome pics, Urbanschmurban.

Milwaukee really impresses me. Truly a gem. I never set foot in Milwaukee before 2005, and given the sheer volume of new development, I'm pretty curious what the city used to look like, because right now it seems to have a lot going on.

I think I'll be up there tommorrow. I can never get enough.

Another excellent set of shots, urban. I'd love to see this thread updated more regularly like the one at SkyscraperCity.com. Milwaukee may not be building tall, flashy skyscrapers, but it's certainly doing a lot to create a denser and more continuous urban fabric. Fortunately, most of these in-fill projects are innovative and modern, not architecturally vapid facsimiles of historic styles.
