Sigma helps redevelop historic Milwaukee hotel
Wisconsin & Milwaukee Hotel, LLC
The Sigma Group managed key aspects of the redevelopment of several adjoining parcels in downtown Milwaukee to allow construction of a multi-story Marriott Hotel with ground level retail space and underground parking.
An important element of the project was preserving the building’s historical façade in the heart of Milwaukee’s vibrant downtown. Existing buildings were razed and their interiors were gutted to accommodate the redevelopment.
The existing structures were built up to the right-of-way lines of Milwaukee Street and Wisconsin Avenue with common party walls between each other and adjacent remaining historic buildings. The tight urban nature of the project required diligent evaluation of its impact on the remaining historical buildings as well as structural evaluation of common walls and evaluation of common utilities servicing the various buildings.[/one_half_last]
