MILWAUKEE- The face of Milwaukee is changing as real estate developers are looking to invest in downtown.
Developer Rick Barrett of Barrett Visionary Development says the growth in Milwaukee is something like he’s never seen.
“What’s going on right now is unprecedented for our time, if you look just along the lakefront there are buildings and high rises going up all over the place.”
Barrett is overseeing the development of the Couture, a high rise and transportation hub being built to overlook Milwaukee’s lakefront.
It’s not just downtown, numerous projects are taking place as part of a neighborhood redevelopment project on the near west side, and a Chicago-based group recently purchased the Postal Service Building along St. Paul Avenue.
