Bader Philanthropies to open global HQ in 2018

A local charitable foundation is planning to move its global headquarters to the Harambee neighborhood, and it will rehab an old, vacant building along the way.

Bader Philanthropies is currently renovating the 1927 building at 3318-26 N. King Dr., targeting a 2018 grand opening.  The space, once a shopping complex, will include an addition on the back of the building that will wrap around part of its north side, writes OnMilwaukee’s Bobby Tanzilo.

He recently got a tour of the empty building and joined me in studio to talk about the plans on this week’s Urban Spelunking.
