Big city energy with small town comfort—living Downtown means living in the center of it all.



Living Downtown Waukesha

Downtown and central city housing now include options ranging from luxury condominiums to affordable rentals for Carroll University students, young professionals and empty nesters. The magnet drawing new residents to the downtown area is restaurants, nightlife, theater, outdoor concerts, the farmer’s market and special events.

The downtown district boasts more than 25 cafes and restaurants and 40-50 street-level shops and services. The district is home to bookstores, coffee shops and live music venues, as well as clothing boutiques, restyle shops, salons, banks and unique gift shops.

The downtown is flanked by the Waukesha County Museum with its acclaimed Les Paul Exhibit and the Waukesha Public Library, where outdoor jazz concerts are held at the adjacent Cutler Park. Waukesha runs a bus system for the transportation of workers and provides award winning parks and recreation programs for residents to unwind and play.
