Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Harbor View Plaza

The Harbor View Plaza development connects the past with the future all while creating a public plaza that takes advantage of waterfront access and is designed to resemble shipping containers synonymous with ports from around the world. A fitting tribute to the past while also being an environmental patron to the future.

The community has embraced this public plaza enjoying the play structure featuring a 17’ high spiral slide, water play area, water features, canoe and kayak launch, LED post top lights, wall display and ample tables and bench seating. A unique feature is that of a 3,000-gallon underground reservoir for the splash pad.
