UWM’s New Freshwater School Makes Progress
The $53 million, UW-Milwaukee School of Freshwater Sciences is rising along the waterfront.
The $53 million 100,000 square foot UW-Milwaukee School of Freshwater Sciences building broke ground in June 2012 and should be finished in December 2013. It will have classrooms, aquaculture laboratories, quarantine facilities used in the study of aquatic life, offices, and meeting areas. Additionally, the Center for Water Policy and the Great Lakes Genomics Center will be housed in the facility.
In the end the project was divided into two parts. The M7 is the process of converting a former warehouse in Walker’s Point into a water focused business accelerator, and UWM is building the School of Freshwater Sciences building next to the Great Lakes Water Institute at 600 E. Greenfield Ave. Although, the location isn’t the high visibility site originally hoped for, the two sites working together offer their own opportunities.
