Redevelopment of the former Pabst Brewery continues in the neighborhood now known as The Brewery. Brewery Point Apartments, a senior housing development, was the first new building constructed at the The Brewery, and now construction has started on second building, the Pabst Professional Center, 1036 W. Juneau Ave.  The 73,000 square-foot $10 million office building is being developed by Blue Ribbon Management. The development includes two floors of parking, totaling 68 stalls and multiple floors of office space.

The project is being financed through the EB-5 program, which allows foreign nationals to obtain a visa, by investing $500,000 and creating at least 10 jobs.

In The Architect’s Newspaper, Chris Bentley reports about the design of the buildng by project architect Justin Stuebs of Rinka Chung Architecture, writing that “the soon-to-be-constructed office building’s name nods to the area’s history even as its design arches towards a contemporary vision of the city.”

    “The project is being financed through the EB-5 program, which allows foreign nationals to obtain a visa, by investing $500,000 and creating at least 10 jobs.”

    Why do they need to get foreign nationals to work on a construction project?

  2. Dave Reid says:

    @Dave K Why not? But to be clear this is a program that brings money into the US and creates local jobs.

  3. Dave K. says:

    Maybe I don’t get it – is the project being funded by foreign nationals? Even if foreign money is being used to fund the project, can’t they use Wisconsin labor?

  4. Dave Reid says:

    @Dave K Foreign investors, yes. And yes they certainly can use Wisconsin labor.

  5. Vijay Swearingen says:

    Will there be any first floor retail opportunities here or is it just for office spaces?

  6. Dave Reid says:

    @Vijay I don’t believe there is any retail space in this building.
