    What a monstrosity, the building doesn’t fit with the neighborhood at all. Too high and generic in style, looks like any other new building going up around the country.

    New urban development in B.V. is good. Lived there a long time before being purged out by gentrification. However, urban planners involved in Bay View projects need to take more careful considerations in urban planning and development. Much of which has been curiously overlooked by urban planners. You need to look at how other cities, foreign and domestic, are implementing solutions to environmental issues such as CO2 reduction, congestion, parking, incorporating bicycling commuting, etc.. into urban environments and other environmental engineering considerations. We learn from other cities trials, errors, and achievements. For example, Portland, OR conducts all their urban planning around public transportation. Something we should learn from. What should be a major or number 1 consideration is affordable housing. This is, or should be, the basis, for all new residential urban development. 30%. I said 30%. That is the minimum accepted dollar value that is generally accepted nationwide for the percentage of income one spends on rent. Unfortunately, the reality is that rent in Milwaukee has steadily been on the rise, as so in other cities. Milwaukeans, in greater proportions are now paying 70-80% of their income on rent payments. This is unacceptable.

    Love the look of this building! It fits in perfectly with the look of Bay View’s future.

    Poor Cindy. It’s seriously NIMBYs like you who hold Milwaukee back. Don’t like urban development or increased density? Move to Muskego!
