Historic, Must-See Lofts in Milwaukee

Posted · Add Comment

You’ve probably been drawn to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for its rich history and balance of new and old — for example, it’s one of the oldest major metropolitan cities and was recently ranked as one of the top three up-and-coming cities in the country. Or perhaps it’s the beer-rich culture, or the myriad universities — or maybe you’ve come for the Brewers. All of these reasons are anchored in Brew City’s long history that stretches back to the 1840s. If you’re renting in Milwaukee, you can live in a lofted piece of history itself.

Paper Box Lofts

Paper Box Lofts

These Walker’s Point apartments are built in Milwaukee’s former Paper Box factory, which makes for spacious floor plans, tall ceilings, tons of windows, and brick walls that are full of character.

Reservoir Street Lofts

Just north of downtown, in Brewer’s Hill, these luxury condos offer 14-foot ceilings, large windows, skyline views, a master suite with whirlpool tub, wood ceilings, and the bricks that give Cream City its name. These open-concept lofts are flooded with light, and have raised kitchens to create a sense of separation.

Majestic Lofts

Majestic Lofts

This building was built in 1908 and served as both an office building and a theater before being converted into loft-style apartments. And because it used to be an office building in the middle of downtown, the building is also plugged into a system of convenient skywalks — which are especially nice during cold Wisconsin winters. Although the apartments themselves don’t carry much in the way of historic flavor, the building’s unique setup allows for a private movie theater and an indoor basketball court, putting green, and driving nets.

Brix Lofts

Still filled with the character of the building’s former life as a candy factory, the Brix Apartments Lofts have painted brick, exposed pipes, and large windows, and the added design elements — like aluminum light fixtures — carry the same industrial aesthetic. Twenty-two unique floor plans ensure your apartment is one of a kind.

In a city with such a prominent history, these lofts in Milwaukee provide modern amenities with a touch of the past. Find yours today.
