Northwestern plans 33-story apartment tower in Milwaukee


October 6, 2015

MILWAUKEE Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. plans to build a 33-story apartment tower next to its downtown Milwaukee headquarters.

The $100 million project also will contain retail space and parking for Northwestern employees. Twenty-five floors will be set aside for apartments, containing 308 luxury units and 16 penthouses.

The Daily Reporter ( ) says the remaining eight stories, those closest to the ground, will be for parking, both for employees and the public.

Solomon Cordwell Buenz of Chicago is designing the project. Demolition of the current building at the site is expected to begin in January and the new building to be occupied by spring 2018.

Northwestern Mutual is currently building a 32-story office building in downtown Milwaukee. That building is scheduled to be completed in late 2017.
