downtown headquarters to open in 2017

This week’s location is more “urban” than  it is “spelunking.”  And we’re ditching the history thing, too.

It’s going to be ok, because this building is too shiny and cool to not take a second look.

On this episode, we climb along with OnMilwaukee’s Bobby Tanzilo to the 32nd floor of the new Northwestern Mutual office tower taking shape in Downtown Milwaukee.

Set for a late 2017 open, the new tower will dramatically change Milwaukee’s skyline and will also be one of the greenest buildings in the state.  Right now, a daily crew of roughly 500 workers are busy on the site near Prospect Ave., Mason St. and Wisconsin Ave.

Bobby went inside, took lots of pictures, and joined me in studio to talk about his trip up.
