Unit Features
All of the units at the BreakWater Condominium project will incorporate the following features:

• The BreakWater Condominiums will afford the best acoustic separation in the marketplace. In order
to do this, we essentially build concrete vaults utilizing 12” thick Spancrete on the floors and poured in place concrete walls separating all the units.

• The BreakWater Condominiums will be laid out to accommodate today’s lifestyles including spacious well equipped combination kitchen and dining areas that become the center of activity. All the kitchens include a U-shaped dining counter that is a full 24” deep – plenty of room to spread out a newspaper or to accommodate seven people dining. All the kitchens feature granite countertops, rustic limestone backsplashes, high quality cabinets, under counter lighting, and cut stone footrests.

• The BreakWater Condominiums will be outfitted with kitchen exhausts that vent out through the roof so that when someone cooks a meal, it doesn’t smell up the entire unit, or more importantly, when your neighbor cooks a meal you don’t know it.

• All of the units at the BreakWater Condominiums are designed so that they are pre-wired and can easily accommodate a home theater system. We also offer as an option a stone base for the entire home theater system that blends in with the other stone in the main living area.

• The BreakWater Condominiums are spacious and not cramped. The main living area on a typical unit at the BreakWater is 30-feet by 30-feet – more than ample room for a living room home theater set up, a gracious dining area, and Renner Architects famous kitchen/dining areas. Ceiling heights reach almost 11-feet. The BreakWater’s living areas are large enough to accommodate large comfortable furniture and sizeable parties.

• Every unit at the BreakWater Condominiums is outfitted with track lights that are recessed into pockets in the ceiling and controlled by dimmer switches wherever there is a wall that needs lighting.

• All of the units at the BreakWater Condominiums incorporate large well equipped

• The BreakWater Condominiums are filled with natural light in the living area and have large operable windows, but not floor to ceiling glass, in the bedrooms.

• Every unit at the BreakWater Condominiums includes a large 12-foot by 18-foot private deck that is large enough to accommodate grilling, outdoor dining, entertainment, lounging in the sun, and growing
a few plants. Every deck at the BreakWater Condominiums includes steel and glass rails that cut down the wind and extend the season. The deck rails are configured to allow an additional glass panel to be slid in from the top to provide further protection from the lake winds. The decks have enough room for comfortable dining, a gas connection for outdoor grilling, a hose bibb for watering the plants, and track lighting mounted on the deck above for night lighting. Each deck has a drainage system so if you water the plants you don’t water the deck below, and almost all the decks have a deck above so you can enjoy outdoor life even if it is raining.

• The views from the BreakWater are going to be spectacular. Views looking east look directly out over Lake Michigan and views looking south look down the lakefront toward the Calatrava museum and the harbor. The block immediately south of the BreakWater is Milwaukee’s most important and picturesque collection of historic mansions.

• All of the units at the BreakWater Condominiums incorporate quality finishes, detailing, and a sense of style. Standard finishes at the BreakWater include real ľ” rustic maple floors, matching rustic 3-part maple base, door jambs and casings, and very high quality 1-3/4” maple panel doors and compatible hardware.
