“Massive project will redefine the Milwaukee River and N. Water St.”
I think that’s kind of a lazy subtitle. That area has already been redefined, and this is just another cookie cutter development that looks like all the others. I am glad to see development, of course. It’s better than nothing. But these giant blocks all look more or less the same. They are hulking boxes. And they are aimed primarily at young professionals with good jobs. Again, that’s fine, but it just gets repetitive.
Yet another building that blocks a view of the river! In this situation couldn’t the buildings be terraced down the hill to the river? This way the dwellings on water and above could have a shared view of the river. The Milwaukee river is becoming a canal with little green space and a lot of hard scape. I’m excited for all the activity of buildings that’s happening in our beautiful city! I’m critical of how fast buildings are going up with what I see little thoughtful design of buildings and the natural landscape. Thank you Larry.
