Milwaukee Historic Third Ward

Apartments: Historic Third Ward

The Historic Third Ward offers urban living at the epicenter of Milwaukee’s art and fashion scene. Sandwiched between the award-winning Riverwalk and Lakeshore State Park in a redeveloped warehouse district adjacent to the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, the area appeals to those seeking an active, upscale, art-infused lifestyle. Easy access to a full spectrum of businesses promotes work-life balance, whether one is heading to the famed Milwaukee Public Market, yoga, a salon, or a state-of-the-art work center. Boutiques and specialty shops that offer clothing and accessories, stationary, home furnishings and décor populate the area, as do national retailers such as West Elm, Anthropologie and Pendleton. It also features art galleries, gastropubs, craft cocktail establishments, coffeehouses, brew pubs, and purveyors of handmade artisan foodstuffs! There are plenty of options for socializing, including an escape-room adventure, ping pong and painting bars, a pedal tavern, and outdoor events such as gallery nights and Christmas in the Ward, not to mention the many fests at nearby Henry Maier Festival Park. Sidewalk dining and rooftop venues such as the Outsider and Cafe Benelux capitalize on cityscapes year round in this gem of a neighborhood!
