It doesn’t.

We’ve also seen no evidence that it is growing faster than the rest of the Midwest, or even any clarity about what exactly is growing. Population, economy, cost of living? Never specified.

The population is growing faster than midwest metros in decline like Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, etc.

The metropolitan area of Milwaukee is not declining, the city itself is, though....

Pittsburgh isn’t in the Midwest.

Parts of the city of Milwaukee are thriving. Downtown has a fair amount of new construction, and the East Side is as lovely as ever. You can't paint with such a broad brush.

Lets compare MSP with Milwaukee metro:
Milwaukee population 2000 = 1,500,741
Milwaukee population 2017 = 1,576,236 (5.03%)

MSP population 2000 = 3,031,918
MSP population 2017 = 3,600,618 (18.76%)

Nowhere did I say it was growing as fast. Positive things are happening, though.

Ugh. You misunderstood my answer, and I was NOT painting with a broad brush. I was talking about the POPULATION. And the person I was replying to was asserting that the Milwaukee metro wasn't growing, when it is, just not the city. I am aware of the architectural advances, as I used to live there.

Interestingly, the long-term growth rate of Minnesota as a whole easily leads the entire Midwest.

And three of our immediate neighbors - IA, ND, SD - have the 2nd and 4th and 5th lowest growth rates, respectively, on a national basis.

I'm convinced the only reason the Twin Cities isn't the fastest growing metro in the country is because of the bad weather.
