When the Democratic National Convention comes to Milwaukee this summer, the more than 50,000 attendees will see a very different downtown Milwaukee than they would have 10 years ago. It’s no secret that the city of Milwaukee has changed dramatically over the years, and that change continues today with hundreds of millions of dollars in new construction on the drawing boards.

On this edition of UWM Today, we focus on the updated face of the city of Milwaukee. Joining us are two experts on urban landscapes: Carolyn Esswein, a professor in UWM’s School of Architecture and Urban Planning, and Kyle Reynolds, an associate director in the school, which is Wisconsin’s only school of architecture and urban planning.

Tom Luljak hosted UWM Today on WUWM for more than two decades and is the inaugural host of Curious Campus.
