Northwestern Mutual Headquarters

Constructed on the same downtown Milwaukee campus the firm has occupied for nearly 100 years, this $450M 32-story corporate tower also includes the “Commons,” a 3-story podium that features a wide variety of amenities for the 3,000 employees who will occupy the building as well as some available to the general public. Open space improvements to the 8-acre campus include the 3-acre South Garden, streetscape enhancements, exterior roof terraces and the renovation of the central atrium in the historic south office building.

Designed to preserve a number of significant specimen trees, the South Garden improvements will provide a number of spaces to support private and public events. Wide, comfortable sidewalks and renovated crosswalks promote walkability and provide numerous access points into the garden. A street-level terrace features a performance stage framed around an existing specimen oak and opens to a gently sloped event lawn that comfortably accommodates 1,500. Cascading water features bookend monumental stairs leading up to the podium terrace, which features a generous dining terrace and a small lawn to accommodate intimate events.

Construction of the Tower and Commons began in 2014 and was completed in 2017.
