Considerable progress has been made on the initial phase of UW-Milwaukee’s Kenwood Interdisciplinary Research Complex since construction started in late 2012. The Flad Architects designed building is located at the northwest corner of N. Maryland Ave. and E. Kenwood Blvd. on UWM’s campus. The facility will include research labs, collaboration space, and office space to support Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) programs at UWM. The initial phase, at a estimated cost of $45 million, should be completely by November 2014.

As Bruce Murphy recently noted this is just one of many capital projects underway at UWM:

Mostly under Santiago and Lovell, UWM has also undertaken a long list of building projects that have expanded its footprint in Milwaukee, including the Kenilworth Building on Prospect Avenue (total cost about $65 million), the purchase and renovation of the old Columbia Hospital (about $40 million), the School of Freshwater Sciences on E. Greenfield Ave. on the lake ($53 million), the Zilber School of Public Health in the Brewery project on 10th and State streets ($12.5 million), the Kenwood Interdisciplinary Research Center across from the student union ($80 million) and, out in Wauwatosa near the Medical College of Wisconsin, the Innovation Accelerator ($11 million) and Innovation Campus Integrated Research Center ($75 million).

Our photos show the amount of progress that has been made on the new building on Kenwood.
