    Why would anyone rent in Milwaukee at $2,500 to $3,000? I rented on the Eastside from 2004 to 2011 for a 1bdr for less than $700. The Brady area neighborhood had all the amenities these properties have. Now it even has the new Hoppe rail line a block away. The development of these “market priced” units all over the outlying downtown neighborhoods have a whiff of “white privilege” attached to it. Meanwhile those working downtown who make possible the efficiency of the city life to operate can’t afford to live in and enjoy their city. They can only observe others doing it at 3 times the affordable rent. I think it’s past time that $800 per month units be the standard for new development in near downtown spaces. Also new units like Walker’s Point require parking no matter how anyone defines walkable. These tenants aren’t going to walk very much at all. They don’t have to.
