501 W Michigan St
HQ501 promises to be Downtown Milwaukee’s most exciting revitalization project yet. The building, built to hold 2,000 employees in the 1980s, has been nearly vacant for the last three years and has gone mostly unnoticed in the Milwaukee skyline, despite its prominent visibility from I-94. RINKA and F Street Development Group have reimagined it to become the destination headquarters it was meant to be, with its central location, 800+ stall parking garage, and large open floorplates that allow for efficient, interactive, and collaborative office environments, and the potential for four additional floors for a hotel. A redesigned plaza provides eye-catching signage and an active entrance for multiple modes of transportation to the site. The fourth-floor rooftop deck offers fresh air retreats, city-view lunch breaks, or sunset cocktails with impressive views. Within blocks of the Wisconsin Center, the Deer District, Third Ward, and many other Milwaukee amenities, this Downtown relic gets new life as a mixed-use office destination through bold and unconventional rehab solutions.
