May 15, 2015 -- A report measuring downtown Milwaukee's entertainment and hospitality offerings was released today. The report touts the streetcar as helping to address downtown's connectivity. According to the Milwaukee Business Journal, "The downtown streetcar will address one concern raised in the Hunden study: Connectivity of nightlife and dining zones in and around the downtown area, the firm said. Better transportation links are necessary to connect Brady Street, the 3rd Ward and sections of the central part of downtown." According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, "Due to the large physical area taken up by downtown, Milwaukee's nodes of dining and nightlife activity are fairly spread out and there is no easy way to experience them all without using a car," it said. The recently approved downtown streetcar "is a great start" to solving that problem, the report said." The report was commissioned by the Greater Milwaukee Committee and Milwaukee Downtown Business Improvement District No. 21 who hired Hunden Strategic Partners, Chicago, to conduct the analysis.
