A number of buildings in the historical commercial core of downtown Milwaukee are undergoing renovation. The Loyalty Building, 611 N. Broadway, is undergoing an extensive renovation as it is converted to the Hilton Garden Inn hotel by First Hospitality Group, Inc. The Iron Block Building’s facade is getting completely restored as part of the relocation of Dental Associates to downtown Milwaukee from Wauwatosa. The facades of both buildings are currently covered as workers restore the historic buildings.
Nearby, a number of other things are happening that promise to add more life to the area. The Follansbee Block awaits its turn at restoration as part of the Marriott Hotel project (pictured last week
). Downtown Books’ new location is adding more life to the street across from the future Hilton Garden Inn. The campaign to re-elect the President, Obama for America, has found a home in the Railway Exchange Building. And Don Arenson is looking for first floor tenants at 608 N. Broadway for $5/sq-ft.
