Harbor Chase of Shorewood, 1111 E. Capitol Dr.
Situated along the Milwaukee River, Oak Leaf Trail, and Capitol Drive, the Milwaukee River Site was a 6.9-acre, high-priority redevelopment opportunity. In 2013, the Village was approached by Harbor Retirement Associates (HRA) to develop a senior assisted and memory care facility within Shorewood's River District at 1111 E. Capitol Drive, the former Riverbrook restaurant location.

HRA developed the site as a continuous facility, having the front section along Capitol Drive as a 4-story assisted living with 60 units and a 1-story memory care with 36 units in the back section. 55 parking stalls are provided underground for staff.
