That's pretty cool. The bulging shape is unique... makes the building look like it must hold a lot of units.

IF it gets built, which seems more and more unlikely by the day, it'll be mostly office and a hotel and only about 14 floors of condos. It'd be nice to see it built but it'd be even nicer to see it built more than a block away from the Firstar Building (which is about the same height), maybe even on the other side of downtown.

Well according to some people in the project talking to biztimes.com after Baird renewed at US Bank Center - the project is very alive and it's looking up. The struggle is to get another big office anchor - whoever it may be.

Updates

I know things have been posted here and there, but I'm wondering if there's any news on this project?

I just noticed the similarity of this to Perkins & Will-designed Espirito Santo Bank tower, proposed to be built in Miami.

(LPT on left, Espirito Santo Bank tower on right)

Hope LPT gets buillt first. It's a miles better, and seemingly larger, tower

Well that's a bit insulting.....a Miami building is going to look exactly like our own. Indeed.

Wow, that's insanely ridiculous! It doesn't look similar, it's a damn carbon copy. I don't know about you guys but this one looks like a complete death blow to Lake Pointe Tower.

its only a blow if it's designed by the same company..... LPT will probably never be completely dead... unless every possible office tenant says i'll never expand into that tower

LPT dead -- hopefully a decent project coming.

U.S. Bank working on redevelopment plan for parking structure

Minneapolis-based U.S. Bancorp is examining the possibility of redeveloping the 900-space parking structure located to the south of its 42-story office tower in downtown Milwaukee.

U.S. Bank hired Brookfield-based Hammes Co. to help create a redevelopment plan for the parking structure. U.S. Bank has been working on the project with Hammes since last fall.

"We are investigating the possibility of replacing our parking structure," said U.S. Bancorp vice president Joe Ullrich. "In doing so we are investigating how we might re-build it to allow for the best chance for a redevelopment, the highest and best use, rather than just a replacement. Hammes is helping us determine what we should be looking at."

Stuart Zadra, vice president of Hammes Co., declined to disclose details about the development that could be incorporated into the parking structure site.

"We are in the initial stages of establishing that plan," he said.

The property's location near Lake Michigan and next to the U.S. Bank building and near other major downtown firms, including Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. and Johnson Controls, makes it very attractive for development, Zadra said. The recession makes a major redevelopment difficult, but the involvement of a major financial institution such as U.S. Bank is a major plus, he said.

A few years ago U.S. Bank partnered with JBK Properties on a proposed 40-story mixed use building for the site of the garage annex, located southeast of the U.S. Bank office tower and next to the tower's parking structure. That project, called Lake Pointe Tower, never moved forward because JBK could not obtain an anchor office tenant.

The garage annex would be incorporated into the master plan for the parking structure redevelopment, Ullrich said.

U.S. Bancorp hopes to begin work on the project this year, Ullrich said.

"We're looking at a plan to do significant repairs to the parking structure or to start a redevelopment project before the end of the year," he said.
