The construction of The Couture, a 44-story mixed-use skyscraper at 909 E Michigan Street in Milwaukee, has nearly reached its full height. Barrett Lo Visionary Development oversees this project, which will stand at 507 feet on completion, making it Wisconsin’s fourth tallest building and its highest primarily residential structure.
The latest installment of the “Sister Cities” series focuses again on Milwaukee, where “The Couture” continues to rise at 909 E Michigan Street. Developed by Barrett Lo Visionary Development, the 44-story mixed-use project will soon be Wisconsin’s fourth tallest building and its tallest primarily residential development. Having now passed the halfway mark, the skyscraper will stand 516 feet tall, slightly taller than The Row Fulton Market as a Chicago height reference.
Chicago YIMBY’s Sister Cities series continues as we take a look at the newest building rising to redefine the skyline of Milwaukee. Located at 909 E Michigan Street on the intersection with N Lincoln Memorial Drive in downtown, ‘The Couture’ replaces the previous Downtown Transit Center and is directly across the street from the lakefront and Summerfest grounds. Developer Barrett Lo Visionary Development has been working on the project for a few years with Milwaukee-based RINKA Architecture.
Chicago YIMBY continues our Sister Cities series covering projects across the Midwest with a newly completed building in our closest neighbor city, Milwaukee. The predominantly residential structure at 700 E Kilbourn Avenue in the heart of downtown has become the world’s tallest mass-timber structure, placing the city at the heart of the discussion of future construction technologies. Developers New Land Enterprises and Wiechmann Enterprises partnered with architecture firm Korb + Associates on its design and Thornton Tomasetti on its engineering.
