On this week’s Urban Spelunking podcast, we’re in downtown Milwaukee at the Schlitz Park office complex, inside the former Schlitz Brewery.
It has been in a nearly constant state of updating since the brewery left in the 1980s, most recently undergoing a $6 million renovation. The nearly completed project incorporates new and reclaimed artwork across the 32-acre campus, including a vibrant new mural that has already become a popular photo op.
Crestlight Capital and TPG Real Estate acquired the campus in 2019, months before the pandemic, when the campus had 100% capacity, according to OnMilwaukee’s Bobby Tanzilo.
The owners continued to renovate through the pandemic and now, as workers are returning to offices in greater numbers, they’ll be greeted with interesting bits of history from the brewery’s history integrated into the office design.
