Northwestern Mutual set to build office tower in Milwaukee
Northwestern Mutual recently unveiled the design of its new 32-story office tower and common space. The 1.1 million gross-square-foot tower will be built in downtown Milwaukee and is expected to cost approximately $450 million. Construction is scheduled to start in 2014 and be completed by 2017.
