On this short episode, we discuss Milwaukee's former Greyhound bus station, as well as the 22-story office tower it's attached to, now in the portfolio of developer Josh Jeffers.

Its location at 7th and Michigan will undergo a ton of changes in the coming months, as the lot across the street transforms into the Iron District, which will offer a new music venue, housing and soccer stadium.

As for the building itself, the future is open to many possibilities, while the present still contains hints of its bus depot past. We talk about the full spectrum of time in this week's episode, and even more about its history.
