The East Side is a vibrant and energetic neighborhood of the historic Oriental Theatre, situated between the shores of Lake Michigan and the trails of the Milwaukee River. The Peck School of the Arts adds artistic energy as does the faculty and students of the nearby University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. We’re minutes from downtown and one of the most walkable neighborhoods in the city.

We're known for our nightlife, but the neighborhood is just as active during the day. From the variety of professional, medical and service-oriented businesses to the fitness, retail, and specialty grocers, we are an ideal neighborhood for employees that want to live where they work.

There are advantages to locating your business in a Business Improvement District.  Please contact us for more information about The East Side BID advantage.

In addition, the City of Milwaukee has several business development resources, available in their BUSINESS TOOLBOX.
