Milwaukee Walker's Point/Fifth Ward

Apartments: Walker's Point/Fifth Ward/Bayview/St. Francis

Rooted in its storied history as a fur-trading post dating back to 1835, Walker’s Point displays an edgy, industrial riverside environment that embraces a modern, urbane lifestyle that celebrates its diverse demographic. Its LGBTQ community lends vibrancy to the neighborhood, as does its overarching Latino flavor. This exciting amalgamation is complemented by diversity in the local food culture. It’s a foodie oasis with locally sourced, award-winning artisanal kitchens, like farm-to-table Braise, that serve up innovative dishes for discriminating palates as well as culinary arts programs. Craft distilleries and breweries add spirited fun, as does the local coffee roasted at Anodyne Coffee and the popular artisan ice cream served at Purple Door. Look no further than Walker’s Point and the Fifth Ward for the area’s best LGBTQ clubs; eccentric bars, such as the frontiersmen-inspired Boone & Crockett or the biker-themed Fuel Cafe bar, coffee shop and diner; swing dance events; jazz or blues performances plus other local music as featured on 88Nine Radio Milwaukee, a public station located in Walker’s Point; comedy shows and more. Committed to green and sustainable development, it features repurposed architecture, a noteworthy collection of antiques dealers and vintage retailers, river access at Milwaukee Kayak Company, and is the site of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s School of Freshwater Science.

Just over the arches of the Harbor District’s Hoan Bridge, is the whimsical, eclectic community known as Bay View. Nestled on the Lake Michigan shoreline, it  is a magnet for young professionals and young families.
