A news release said the plaza is located on the inner harbor at the eastern end of Greenfield Avenue, and features a lookout tower, a handicapped-accessible kayak/canoe launch, and seating areas to watch the ships at Port Milwaukee, with a unique view of the Milwaukee skyline. A water circulation and filtration system in the plaza captures stormwater, and also provides a unique children’s play area with shallow water and pumps.

Harbor View Plaza was planned with extensive neighborhood input and a public design competition in 2016.

Rockwell Automation and the Brico Fund were early supporters of redevelopment in the Harbor District.
