"There have been a number of new developments in Milwaukee that position Frederick Lofts as an ideal place to call home. The area hosts corporate headquarters of seven Fortune 500 companies and is ranked second in Fortune 500 companies per capita when compared to the ratios of the 25 largest metro-areas. In addition, the unemployment rate in Milwaukee is 3.0%, below the national unemployment rate 3.7%, the population has increased 26% and median household incomes have increased by 38% since 2000. Most impressive, perhaps, is that $1.7 billion in investment has taken place downtown in the same timeframe," said Bruce.
