Emerald Row is located within the heart of Drexel Town Square, and for good reason!
Drexel Town Square is Oak Creek’s newest retail, commercial, residential and civic development, built on the corner of Drexel and Howell Avenues. Reminiscent of a traditional downtown, the new development includes a real Main Street – Oak Creek’s first – with a new City Hall and Library on a town square, surrounded by retail stores, restaurants, shops, businesses and apartments. All of this, with lots of open spaces, walkways and charming amenities like a splash pool, ice rink and a farmer’s market.
The City of Oak Creek is in the southeastern corner of Milwaukee County. Incorporated in 1955, it has seen a mix of manufacturing, service, agriculture and even an airport. Residential development has grown steadily, while the city still maintains a charming, rural feel with lots of open spaces and undeveloped land. Major employers in Oak Creek include Master Lock, Northwestern Mutual and Caterpillar Mining.
It’s not “just like downtown.” It IS downtown.
