The southernmost of the north shore’s four “Gold Coast” communities and adjoining Milwaukee’s Upper East Side, Shorewood is a cross between urban and suburban living. Shorewood is higher density than its three northern neighbors with more rental and condo units. Its residents enjoy shopping conveniences along Oakland Avenue. If classic architecture is what you are looking for, Shorewood’s single family homes have a lot to offer. The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) is just a few blocks to the south. Most homes were built in the 1920’s through the 1940’s.
