In recent years, Milwaukee has emerged as a magnet for young professionals in the Midwest. Cream City has started to take on a life of its own for 20-somethings looking for a cheaper alternative to Chicago. Major companies in the area — Target, Kohl’s, and a few others — are a major draw for young professionals, as are affordable rents. You don’t have to be super-rich to afford an apartment in Milwaukee — even a big one. Here are five two-bedroom apartments for rent in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Situated in the hip Third Ward, Jefferson Bock is a modern, newly constructed apartment complex with loft touches. Residents enjoy 24-hour maintenance, a “sky walk” with great views of the city, and an exercise facility. And thanks to state-of-the-art soundproofing technology, they don’t enjoy every sound their neighbors make.
Conveniently located steps from campus, The Marq is perfect for busy Marquette students. With an a variety of room sizes, an in-house fitness center, gorgeously furnished common areas (complete with pool tables), and an enormous laundry room, The Marq gives students everything they need for daily life… except an education. You’ll still have to walk across the street for that.
Hardwood floors. Built in bookcases. High, lofted ceilings. A classy red brick exterior. If you’ve ever wanted to imagine you’re in a brownstone in New York without leaving Milwaukee, 2803 East Bellevue is your place. It was built in 1903 and recently lovingly restored to its original glory. The apartments are huge, over 1,500 square feet, and feature antique touches like bathtubs and fireplaces — but at a price that won’t make you feel like you’ve left the Midwest.
The first things you’ll notice about this Yankee Hill apartment building are the balconies — there are a ton of them, and they offer great views of downtown. With covered parking, in-unit laundry, and plenty of outdoor communal space, City Green doesn’t sacrifice convenience or comfort for a prime location. Two-bedrooms come in a variety of sizes and layouts.
This recently remodeled duplex is in the heart of Bayview, just a block from some of the best bars and restaurants in Milwaukee. Don’t let its nondescript exterior fool you — inside is a sleek and quirky apartment with luxurious modern touches. Hardwood floors, brand new stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, a gorgeous bathroom with subway tiles… and that’s not even mentioning the brand new windows, brand new HVAC system, and huge front porch.
