Stuff That’s Done (in Milwaukee): 7SEVENTY7

7SEVENTY7 in downtown Milwaukee.

This is the third and final entry on this blog dedicated to 7SEVENTY7, a residential tower in Milwaukee that went from a hole in the ground on my first visit, to work-in-progress construction site on my second go ’round in 2017, to a finished apartment building when I walked by early in June 2021.

Northwestern Mutual teamed up with Hines to get 7SEVENTY7 built. The Solomon Cordwell Buenz design was built by C.D. Smith Construction.

Milwaukee’s tallest residential tower upon its completion in 2018, it delivered 310 units atop a 10-story parking garage. That parking garage, boasting 1,400 spaces, might seem like a lot, but 7SEVENTY7 compliments Northwestern Mutual’s also-recently-completed office tower a block away; these parking spaces are meant to be shared with that office building and the apartments’ attached retail space.

Enjoying the photos? Metra and CTA rides (and Amtrak trains to Milwaukee), Zipcars, Divvy Bikes, camera lenses, and comfortable walking shoes are adding up. You can help offset expenses by making a greatly-appreciated donation to Building Up Chicago.
