Transforming the downtown Milwaukee skyline, The Couture will replace an underused transit center with a multimodal transit hub for the community. As a key piece of the Lakefront Gateway Project, the 47-story tower - which will be the state’s tallest residential building upon completion - will bring vibrancy to the lakefront site.
- In addition to 50,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space located in the podium, the slender, 537-foot-high residential tower (as measured from the top of foundations) will include 322 high-end apartment units.
- The site contains a new light rail connection that passes through the podium and over the top of the two-story basement parking levels as well as a pedestrian bridge connecting the building to Milwaukee’s lakefront.
- Façade engineering services include contract document review, subcontractor submission reviews, and on site observations of curtain wall, window wall, storefront and structural glass systems.
