Northwestern Mutual Tower and Commons

Gilbane Team is Building New Office Tower for Northwestern Mutual in Downtown Milwaukee

Gilbane Building Company is providing general contracting services for Northwestern Mutual’s new corporate headquarters. This important project will be built in downtown Milwaukee along the lakefront and will allow the company to better serve the expanding needs of its more than four million policy owners and clients. The Tower and Commons project will preserve 1,100 downtown jobs while creating 1,900 new jobs at the company’s downtown Milwaukee campus. The 32-story tower (approximately 550 feet tall) will adjoin the two-block-long, three-story space known as the Commons.

Among other amenities, the new development will include:

  • A nearly three-acre public green space with abundant gardens and trees, a water feature, tables, benches and walkways
  • Casual dining opportunities open to the public
  • Conference rooms where employees can reserve space to meet with civic groups, vendors, etc.

Construction on the Tower and Commons will be completed in 2017. The new development will be located on the site of the former east building.
