On a related note, the Federal Courthouse is beautiful inside. We went for Doors Open and couldn't believe what was in there.

And on that note I wonder (another reason for my confusion), why is this here in Milwaukee and not Madison?

There is a federal courthouse in Madison too, but it’s just smaller. Madison is the seat of state government but Milwaukee is a much bigger city, so there is more need to work on federal cases, and thus a bigger courthouse, in Milwaukee.

Wisconsin is split into two federal districts, east and west. The Eastern District of Wisconsin has courts in Milwaukee and Green Bay (the chief judge of the Eastern District actually sits in Green Bay, not Milwaukee) and handles cases from the eastern part of the state. The Western District of Wisconsin is located in Madison and handles cases from the western part of the state.

MSOE is certainly doing their part to improve downtown.

MSOE To Redevelop Oldest Residence Hall

The Milwaukee School of Engineering‘s oldest and largest residence hall, Roy W. Johnson Hall, will be expanded and redeveloped as part of a $37 million effort by the university.

The 13-story tower, built in 1965, currently houses approximately 450 students. The redevelopment will add space for an additional 96 as well as providing a number of collaboration spaces. The school intends to refocus the building as a “living-learning community,” with a first floor filled with collaboration spaces, classrooms and study areas for residents and non-resident students alike.

The university plans to add a glassy tower to the building’s southern facade, which will include additional residences, bathrooms and two-story “collaboration hubs.” The hubs will allow the university to group floors by degree program or interest to encourage collaboration.

Nice. About time MSOE starts putting facelifts on their buildings, because they're a huge reason why that part of town is so ugly and underutilized.

It's unfortunate that they aren't using this as an opportunity to extend Highland to Milwaukee street. A plaza is better than what is there now, though I wonder if the plaza will extend all the way to Broadway?

I was up in Milwaukee this weekend for the first time in over a year and the city looked fantastic. Lots of people around despite the cold weather.

I drove past the Huron Building site and it looks like prep work is well underway. The more I look at the renderings and the surrounding lots, the more excited I am about this project. The design is fantastic and integrates very well with surrounding buildings. It's also filling up part of the big empty hole on Clybourn. Really great infill.

The three hotel development is definitely well underway. I saw crews demolishing the shorter building today. The building came down pretty quickly.

By my count, that is three active construction projects along Clybourn Avenue. If the Couture gets going soon, that would be four with three of them east of the river. With the new apartment building going up on St. Paul, that area quickly went from dead zone to active developments in all directions.

Any word on that mansion to be converted to a B&B or boutique hotel on the lower east side near downtown?
