Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s largest metropolitan area, is a beautiful city rife with opportunities for culture, education, and professional development, as well as lakefront adventures. As such a large city, of more than 500,000 people, Milwaukee has distinctive neighborhoods that each offer something a bit different. If you’re looking to rent a spacious, modern apartment, focusing your search in the downtown and Third Ward areas will be your best bet. Here are six of the best luxury apartments Milwaukee has to offer.
At the Moderne, residents enjoy a taste of pure luxury. Apartments here include the usual modern amenities of in-unit laundry, a fitness center, covered parking, and storage. But the Moderne goes above and beyond the usual, offering a full-service concierge, dry cleaning services, a hospitality suite for your visitors, and room service from Carson’s Prime Steaks and Ribs. And that’s not even mentioning the lake and city skyline views enjoyable from all 30 stories.
In addition to living in luxury, if you’re a resident of Eleven25 at Pabst, you’ll also be living in a bit of Milwaukee’s history. Firstly, Milwaukee bears the nickname “Cream City” because of the distinctive color of the bricks made from clay found in the Menomonee Valley — those cream-colored bricks build the exterior of the Eleven25. Secondly, as the name implies, this building used to house bottling operations for the historic Pabst Brewery. Now renovated into modern off-campus student housing, Eleven25’s residents can expect a fitness center, theater, and parking in downtown Milwaukee.
This recent construction promises a “new standard of living.” In the heart of the East Side, conveniently located between downtown and the UW-Milwaukee campus, the Standard offers a prime spot just off of North Avenue — a main line for nightlife and restaurants — for students or young professionals. Aside from the walkable neighborhood, the Standard also includes parking, a clubhouse, fitness center, and rooftop access to take in the cityscape.
These Milwaukee luxury apartments, like the Eleven25 Pabst, also give renters the chance to live inside the city’s history. These lofts are in a restored and renovated warehouse that was first constructed as a candy factory more than 100 years ago. It now boasts more than 20 unique floorplans, with one, two, or three bedrooms, a sustainability-minded green roof, vaulted ceilings, fitness center, and easy access to trails along the Menomonee River.
These four are just a sampling of the wonderful luxury apartments Milwaukee has to offer — and, better yet, many of them also allow pets. Prepare to live the good life in one of the Midwest’s best cities.
