The Breakwater’s location and neighborhood is as good as it gets in Milwaukee – stunning views across Burns Park and towards Lake Michigan, and equally stunning views south looking over the historic mansions toward the Calatrava and harbor.
Renner Architects has pulled together an east of the river downtown Milwaukee map that identifies all of the restaurant, shopping, and entertainment venues on Milwaukee’s East Side – copies are available at Renner Architects.
It is an easy walk down the public stairway across Burns Park down to Milwaukee’s lakefront, McKinley Marina, and the Milwaukee Yacht Club. Other neighborhood assets are the grocery offerings, including:
• Metro Market is only five blocks to the west and offers top shelf produce, meat, and seafood departments – as good as any in the city.
• Whole Foods is just a mile to the north and offers an almost unbelievable selection of low cost dining and prepared food offerings. A trip to Whole Foods is worth two hours of entertainment.
• Glorioso’s Deli on Brady Street is like a little trip to Italy – a fabulous Italian deli.
• Two Sendik’s stores are close by – one on North Downer and one on North Oakland. Grocery stores don’t get any better than Sendik’s.
The Wisconsin Conservatory of Music is just a few blocks down the street and holds several concerts a week.
