Rezoning approved for Rivianna, BreakWater

Last updated on May 13th, 2019 at 02:45 pm

The Milwaukee Common Council recently approved the re-zoning requests for the Rivianna and The BreakWater Condominiums projects. Rivianna is the $100 million development proposed by Bob Schultz along the Milwaukee River just south of the Third Ward. The project would feature three towers, each 16 stories high, with a total of 165 condos and a 60-room boutique hotel. The project was opposed by several residents in the area who said it would be too tall and out of scale with the neighborhood. However, aldermen voted 13-1 in favor of the re-zoning, with Alderman Robert Bauman casting the only "no" vote. More information about the project is available at

The BreakWater Condominiums is the 21-story, 104-unit condominium development that Renner Architects LLC plans to build a 1313 N. Franklin Place, on the city’s east side. The former Christopher East Medical Center building on the property would be demolished to make way for BreakWater. Aldermen supported the rezoning for the project with a 14-0 vote.
