On the Beaten Path.
Today, an estimated 24,000 vehicles travel McKinley Avenue to and from Downtown Milwaukee each workday. The “corridor,” as it once was known, and continues to be recognized as by some today, remains appropriate – as the Park East is located in a hotbed of Southeastern Wisconsin’s social and entertainment activity.
Development within the McKinley Avenue District will be based around the new Milwaukee Bucks’ arena district and will complement the existing cultural venues, from the Wisconsin Center convention facility to the Milwaukee Theatre, Marcus Center for the Performing Arts and the UWM Panther Arena.
Restaurants, pubs and nightclubs are right there on Old World Third Street, along with new offices, apartments, a boutique hotel, the UWM School of Public Health campus, restaurants and more. Happening just west is The Brewery complex, a redevelopment of the historic Pabst Brewery site.
You have a ready-made customer base with students, faculty and staff from the neighboring Milwaukee Area Technical College and Milwaukee School of Engineering campuses. Locate your business amongst world leaders: Time Warner Cable and Manpower International – two corporations who have already relocated here – benefitting from quick and easy access to it all, including the freeway.
The corridor is served by five major bus lines, bringing customers and workers right to your doorstep. The property is also less than two blocks away from ramps to Milwaukee’s two major freeways (I-94 and I-43) providing easy access from the north, south, east and west.
The Park East is a corridor alright, only today it’s funneling traffic – by cars, public transit, bicycle and foot, into the heart of Milwaukee’s Downtown social and entertainment scene and, most importantly, the new businesses and developments within Park East.
Downtown Milwaukee’s Park East neighborhood is ideally located for residents, visitors, businesses, employees and entertainment.
