Milwaukee's Walker's Point neighborhood continues to grow into a full-fledged community with an eclectic dining and bar scene, antique shops, salons and more. One piece that isn't quite there yet is retail. It's coming, though.
Much of the development – including news gleaned from Luci Boutique today – is courtesy of the concept developing at the forthcoming Freshwater Plaza located at 1st and Greenfield. One of the tenants, Luci Boutique, announced today that it will be one of the first locally based retail options at the Freshwater development. The retailer hopes to open October 15.
The new Walker's Point development also includes a Cermak Fresh Market and other national and regional tenants and will be the gateway to the UWM School of Freshwater Sciences, one of the most high-profile developments within the Milwaukee Water Corridor.
Luci Boutique has three locations in greater Milwaukee including Downtown at 706 N. Milwaukee St., East Town Square in Mequon, and a Wauwatosa location at 1430 Underwood Ave., that will be closing soon.
What else? She's a wine lover, closet trashy novel reader, beauty supplies addict and devourer of cheese (shocker for a Wisconsin born and bred girl, right?). She's also a bit of a foodie, which is a word most of you hate, we know. So, you've probably seen her at one of the area's newest restaurant openings (and yes, she will share her opinions good or bad) or enjoying her newfound love, the Dark and Stormy, at a local pub.
All in all, Carolynn's a believer in positive thinking and will do her best to smack down your negative ones while writing about her city, her loves, quests and more.
