Overview

Overlooking the Kinnickinnic River in Milwaukee's Harbor District. R1ver is a new six-acre, mixed-use development that includes a two-story, post-tensioned parking plinth, three office buildings, 67 multifamily units, a 103-room hotel, retail, restaurants and more than 1,000 feet of river walk. 

We are providing structural design services to Rinka Chung Architecture for the development. The first phase is scheduled to be complete by 2020.

Highlights

  • The development offers more than 220,000 square feet of Class-A office space, featuring exposed structural ceilings, with Michels Corporation serving as the anchor tenant.
  • The sites’ proximity to the riverfront requires close coordination between Michels Corporation, the deep foundation and piling contractor, and Thornton Tomasetti for the design of the high-capacity deep foundations and the river wall’s existing tiebacks.
