Fullhouse

Fullhouse, a growing interactive marketing agency, is leaving their crowded Third Ward office space for 23,500 square feet across the river in Walker’s Point. The agency will move into the former Transpak facility, which is being redeveloped by Lighthouse Development into a mixed-use facility known as South Water Works.

Fullhouse will occupy the top two floors of the building at 201 E. Pittsburgh Ave. The adjacent building is being redeveloped as the Bridgeview Apartments, a 55-unit development.

The company is currently located at 207 N. Milwaukee St. Just over a quarter mile from their new location. They’re packed to the brim and bursting at the seems at the Milwaukee St. location, with employees being crammed into any free space that can be found. It’s the kind of problem you’re happy to see a Milwaukee company having. You can always find a bigger building, but if you can’t find work the size of cubicle doesn’t matter.

Having the new office location close to the old one means employees won’t have to search for a new watering hole, but if I’m the owner of MOCT across the street, I’d be a little excited.

Fullhouse leaving the Third Ward next summer will open space for another business to locate and flourish there. For Fullhouse, moving across the river to Walker’s Point (commonly called the Fifth Ward by people trying to cash in on the Third Ward’s real estate prices) will accelerate the development of the neighborhood and allow the company to continue to grow. A trip down any street in the northern most portion of Walker’s Point will quickly show you that the Transpak redevelopment is far from the only thing going on.
