Brady St and Upper East Side Milwaukee

Apartments: Brady Street & Upper East Side

Milwaukee’s Upper East Side and its Brady Street neighborhood, historically the enclave of the city’s Italian immigrants, now encompass a blend of longtime residents, young professionals, university students and staff, and artisans. The area offers the chance to actively engage in the ongoing revitalization of the urban landscape while retaining its bohemian character and ethnic roots.

Ever trendy but strengthened by events and festivals that forge strong neighborhood bonds, the community boasts the eponymous Brady Street Festival, an annual Pet Parade; the indie Milwaukee Film Festival held at distinctive venues such as the historic Oriental Theatre movie palace; and the avant-garde street art gallery, Black Cat Alley. Specialty retailers, chic salons, vintage stores, cozy coffee shops, pubs, inspired restaurants, and flourishing nightclubs offer a variety of experiences. Brew-your-own establishments, underground golf, a full-service gluten-free and vegan bakery, and boutiques featuring ephemera handmade by local artists demonstrate that creativity and innovation abound here. Speaking of innovation, the area will be home to Ascent, a 25-story residential tower that will be the tallest mass timber structure in the world when completed in 2022.
