Irgens-developed 833 East office tower to reshape downtown Milwaukee’s skyline

Once every 10 to 15 years. That’s how often projects as important as the 833 East downtown office tower come along in Milwaukee, said Dave Merrick, development director and Milwaukee manager for Irgens. And this is one of the reasons why Merrick says that Irgens is making a bit of history in Milwaukee in its role as developer/asset manager for 833 East, an 18-story, 358,017-square-foot Class-A office building now under construction on the US Bank Center campus in Milwaukee’s Central Business District. “These types of products don’t come along every day,” Merrick said. “For our firm to be a part of this, to be part of the lakefront redevelopment in Milwaukee, is extremely exciting for everyone in our company.” The 833 East project is part of a larger effort in Milwaukee to connect the city more closely to the shores of Lake Michigan. As Merrick says, the high-rises and other important buildings in downtown Milwaukee have usually hugged the shores of the Milwaukee River, not those of Lake Michigan.

When 833 East opens — Irgens says that the office tower will be ready for occupancy in mid-February of 2016 — it will just add to the activity at this already busy campus, Merrick said. Irgens said that more than 168,000 square feet of 833 East is already pre-leased. The tenant mix includes Godfrey & Kahn, Colliers International, Cresa Milwaukee and First American. Irgens itself is leasing more than 25,000 square feet in the building.


Demolition of an existing structure is well underway. Tower construction should follow soon.

*Height is approximate. Similar office towers have exceeded 300 ft.
