ABODO might be an apartment app, but we also count a fair number of condos among our listings. Many renters — especially young professionals climbing up the corporate ladder — are looking for something more permanent, but homeownership out in the suburbs isn’t in the plans. Condos are a perfect middle ground, and in many Midwestern cities, they’re still an affordable alternative to renting.
That’s especially true in Milwaukee. Nicknamed Cream City for the distinctive color of bricks made in nearby Menomonee Falls, the city has been experiencing an extended period urban revitalization, with formerly industrial areas like The Third Ward becoming centers of art, commerce, and housing. It’s easier than ever to find a place — historic or brand new — in the heart of one of the Midwest’s great metropolises. Here are three Milwaukee condos for rent that will have you dreaming of cream-colored bricks.
Ever dreamed of living in a luxury hotel? The Moderne is about as close as you can get without checking into the Ritz. It’s a 30-story high-rise steps from the BMO Harris Bradley Center, with panoramic views of the entire city of Milwaukee. Residents enjoy full-service concierge service, dry cleaning, and even room-service. Add in a fitness center, brand-new appliances, and even a “mother-in-law suite” for unexpected visitors, and it’s hard to find a more luxurious place to lay your head.
This luxury East Town development has both apartments and condos — but the condos are a cut above. They feature floor-to-ceiling windows, fireplaces, and high ceilings. Large balconies give you a great view of the historic area’s mansions and cathedrals, and the fitness center and covered, heated parking will keep you warm (and fit) in the cold winter months.
This brand-new, spacious condo is just steps from Lakefront Brewery — which could come in handy at happy hour. With hardwood floors, granite countertops, and great views of the Milwaukee River from the balcony, this condo is outfitted for the young professional who likes to live a low-key — but high-end — lifestyle. It’s also great for drivers: The condo comes with two parking spaces in a covered and heated garage.
