Almost a ghost town not too many years ago, Milwaukee’s Third Ward, south of I-94 at the harbor, has a distinctive character all its own. After spending the last two decades in a major revitalization mode, the Third Ward is now a sought-out shopping, dining and entertainment destination. Businesses of all stripes, but in particular small design and marketing agencies, are proud to call the Third Ward their home.
There’s always a place to go in the Third Ward – coffee shops, sidewalk cafes, galleries, restaurants, boutique shops and night spots; it’s all here. The Milwaukee Public Market brings many local businesses under one roof for year-round shopping and dining in a bustling and energetic atmosphere. The deep history of the many old buildings lining the streets of the Third Ward add to the uniqueness, and you can almost see the open-air markets that used to sell their goods on Broadway Ave. The new developments in the area, including the beautiful riverwalk with its outdoor dining and amazing views of the Milwaukee river, to the new condo developments in the area of the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, pay homage to the history of the area while adding new amenities and excitement.
From urban lofts in the old warehouses to premium top floor condos in the newest building along the river there’s a condo in the Third Ward to fit every budget. Expect to pay anywhere between about $100K and $1M. Stunning lofts give you beautiful views of the downtown area, Lake Michigan, and the Hoan Bridge, while the many street-level condos put everything at your fingertips, from world-class dining to the world’s largest music festival, Summerfest. The Third Ward is particularly well-suited for dog owners who wish to live in an urban area; the many small parks and great walkability mean plenty of exercise for your pooch.
With so much to offer, it’s no wonder why Milwaukee’s Third Ward is so popular for residents and business people alike. The “cool factor” offered by this historic area is unmatched by any other neighborhood in the Milwaukee Metro area. Those who work here find a bustling business environment, with opportunities to connect with many clients close by, but also offering a certain amount of caché inherent with being located in this area. The residents of the Third Ward get tons of local amenities, and a sense of Milwaukee pride at being located in one of its most renowned neighborhoods.
