The Pabst Business Center, designed by Rinka Chung Architects, is according to Mike Mervis, of Zilber Ltd., Milwaukee’s first downtown office building to be built in over a decade. The last significant downtown office development prior to this was Cathedral Place, which opened in 2003 and has a mix of both residential and office uses. And more recently, just south of downtown in Walker’s Point, Juli Kaufmann‘s Clock Shadow Building opened in 2012 and has a mix of office and light manufacturing (cheese) uses.

Blue Ribbon Management, led by CEO Tom Gehl, is developing the $10 million, 4-story Pabst Business Center at 1036 W. Juneau Ave. in The Brewery complex. When construction is complete the, 73,000 square-foot building will include two floors of parking, with 68 parking spots, and multiple floors of office space.  Construction is scheduled for completion in 2014.

The project was in part financed through the federal EB-5 program.  The program allows foreign nationals to acquire a visa by creating at least 10 jobs for U.S. citizens and investing $500,000 or more.

Our photos show work continuing through winter and the elevator tower rising above the second floor.
