An 865-bed, two-building residence hall on a parcel at 721 N. 17th St. The complex is owned and operated by Marquette University. The project had an estimated cost of $108 million.

Baltimore-based Design Collective and Milwaukee’s Workshop Architects designed the building and J.H. Findorff & Son managed the complex’s construction.

Ray and Kay Eckstein gave a $10 million donation to support the complex’s construction. The complex was originally named after Rev. Robert Wild, but Wild withdrew his name from the project following a controversy regarding his time at the head of the university.
