Where exactly is this? How would you describe it to a person with only a very, very general knowledge of DT Milwaukee?

That's easy -- go to the website, and you should be enlightened:

Milwaukee has a little skyline to the northeast of the downtown along the lakeshore, and it creates a huge gap. This Breakwater is going to bridge the gap. Or put a spur in the middle, however you want to look at it.

What Paule said. But here's a visual.

Edit* ok... I can't get it to show the map. But there's the link.

Nice. We have to start filling in that gap. I believe Park Lafayette will be somewhere in there too, right?

well, you have to build to suit the customers. Not every cares how bad their house looks, some people like tacky things like pink flamingo's in their lawn, or a van that is painted green and gold. I see this building as a way to create something that people with an alternative sense of tastes might like, so while I don't think it does much to aesthetically improve milwaukee, it does help draw more people to the downtown area, and it increases density, and I think in the long run it will help to create more growth. Just as a wider highway leads to more congestion, I think a an increase in density leads to more growth, and interest in bigger projects.

So the architect for the Breakwater is also the developer, and he also designed Sandburg Halls for UWM.

It's all starting to make sense now.

lol. No doubt!

It's okay though... I look at it as a filler building. We have all kinds of gross buildings in Milwaukee - ever city does. Can't win 'em all.
