Take Me to the River

HDI launched our “Take me to the River” to create new community connections – both programmatic and physical – to the Harbor District waterfront, and to focus on getting things done quickly to create an “early win” for the area.

Harbor View Plaza

Harbor View Plaza is the first major investment in what will eventually be a continuous network of riverwalk and waterfront parks spanning much of the western shore of the Harbor District. Construction of the plaza is expected to begin in fall 2018.

Habitat Hotels

The Habitat Hotels are “pit stops” for fish as they move around the Inner Harbor between other areas with better habitat, or between Lake Michigan and Milwaukee three rivers.

Trash Wheel

The trash wheel, a stationary trash-collecting device, includes a water wheel which runs a conveyor belt. A pair of booms direct trash floating down the river to the conveyor belt, and then trash is collected in a dumpster for removal.
