417 E. Chicago St. is the home of the Dohmen Co. The one-story building has 42,141 square-feet of space. The firm moved to the renovated building in late 2014.

DeMichele Co. represented Dohmen in their purchase of the building and serves as the building manager. Kubala Washatko Architects served as the project architect during the renovation.

In December of 2013, Dohmen Co. announced they had purchased the building and would relocate to the building from Menomonee Falls and other locations around Wisconsin. The firm started in the Third Ward in 1858. Dohmen acquired the building from the Kathleen D’Acquisto Irrevocable Trust.

In July 1994, as the parking garage at 212 N. Milwaukee St. was under construction across the street, the building was sold by Johnson Controls to the Kathleen D’Acquisto Irrevocable Trust. Johnson Controls had used the building for printing and office space.

The building has been home to a number of different tenants since it was built in 1964. Fanatics (185 N. Jefferson St.), a sports bar, closed their doors in March of 2012. Fanatics opened in October 2007. The bar was owned by Tony D’Acquisto. The bar had a capacity of 380.

Hilo Martini Lounge and Restaurant was also a tenant in the building (185 N. Jefferson St.). Hilo opened on May 6th, 2008. Hilo was also owned by the D’Acquisto family. It closed sometime during late 2011 and early 2012.

Anthony’s opened in the Hilo space in March 2013. The bar/lounge closed later that year. It was also owned by members of the D’Acquisto family.

The building was also at one-time home to the offices of Milwaukee Magazine.
