New Northwestern Mutual tower to be completed by 2017
MILWAUKEE -- Northwestern Mutual unveiled the design for its new office tower along Milwaukee's lakefront. Starting early next year, the east tower on the Northwestern Mutual Campus will come down to make room for the brand new tower.
Northwestern Mutual will build a 32 story, 550 ft. tall tower and commons area. Construction should start in 2015, and be complete by 2017. We're told the company plans to preserve the large park space along Wisconsin Ave.
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett explains the new building means potentially thousands of new jobs and a boost to the city's tax base.
