In honor of the opening of the Clock Shadow Building, the Walker’s Point neighborhood played host to a grand opening celebration on June 21st, 2012.  Mayor Tom Barrett kicked off the event, speaking for a few minutes, praising the project and the efforts of developer Juli Kaufmann.  Neighborhood restaurants and businesses including, INdustri Café, Zak’s Cafe, Times Square Bistro & Pizzeria, Milwaukee Brewing Co., and building tenants Purple Door Ice Cream and Clock Shadow Creamery served great food, tasty beverages, fresh cheese, and cold ice cream to festival goers.

The Clock Shadow Building is one of the most environmentally-friendly new construction projects in Milwaukee, if not the country.  The building consumes 50 percent less energy and uses 60 percent less water than a building of similar size built using traditional techniques.  Additionally, under normal conditions it will divert 100 percent of stormwater away from the sewer system.  To meet these energy and water use requirements the building utilizes 27 geothermal wells, an energy-generating elevator, captures rainwater in an underground cistern, and has a green roof.
