Perched on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan in St. Francis, Wisconsin, 42 Hundred on the Lake is a new 236-unit luxury apartment building—by Midwest-based developer M&R Development—that offers a variety of one- and two-bedroom floor plans ranging in size between 585 and 1,204 square feet.

With a prime waterfront location just 5 miles south of downtown Milwaukee, the development team wanted to make the stunning lake views the centerpiece of the community. Beginning in the expansive two-story lobby, a full wall of windows frames Lake Michigan, fills the space with natural light, and allows residents to relax lakeside at all times of the year.

For those still working from home or pursuing a hybrid model, residents can also enjoy the view while they are working or studying. On the second floor of the club room, a unique co-working ledge—built into the interior glass railing and staged with comfortable seating—overlooks the lobby’s first floor and the double-height window wall, providing the ideal perch for taking in the sights and being productive.

When residents are not working, they also have access to recreation right outside their door, as the community connects to the 125-mile Oak Leaf Trail that runs alongside Lake Michigan and throughout Milwaukee County.
