Exploring the Hummel-Uihlein building in Milwaukee

You don’t see architecture like this anymore.

Elaborate candle spires, intricate Cream City brickwork and a castle-like roof line are just some of the distinguishing features of a city-owned building on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and E. Center Street.

It has been vacant for quite some time, but it might be perfect for you!

Just get ready to build some sweat equity.

This week on Urban Spelunking we explore the Hummel-Uihlein building. It was built by the Uihlein (Schlitz) fortune, it was home to long-running neighborhood pharmacy and many other business and now it sits in the city’s foreclosure portfolio.
