Milwaukee’s Tallest Apartment Building
Northwestern Mutual's 7Seventy7 building towers over nearby Cathedral Square Park.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Cathedral Square Park, but that hasn’t stopped construction workers from working on the outdoor pool planned for Northwestern Mutual‘s 7Seventy7 apartment tower. The pool, which will be built atop the roof of the parking structure, is one of many amenities planned for the luxury amenity tower. And while residents aren’t likely to be swimming by this time next year, they’ll have a stunning view of the lights in nearby Cathedral Square, among other city sights they’ll see.
When complete, the $100 million project will rise 34 floors and include 322 high-end apartments, 1,400 parking spaces and first-floor commercial space. The project is slated to open to residents in Summer 2018.
Apartments will be a mix of one, two and three bedroom units.
The huge number of parking spaces in the building is needed to accommodate the company’s new 32-floor Northwestern Mutual Tower and Commons project. The 1.1-million-square-foot office complex includes no significant parking component. It opened on August 21st (see inside).
The apartment tower and parking garage are being designed by Chicago-based Solomon Cordwell Buenz. CD Smith is leading the general contracting. Magnusson Klemencic Associates is providing structural engineering services for the project.
Northwestern Mutual acquired and demolished a number of buildings on the block over many years to assemble the site, including The Vermont Apartments and Hollitz Building as well as buildings at 604 E. Mason St., 624 E. Mason St., 771 N. Van Buren St. and 795 N. Van Buren St.
