Grohmann Residence Tower

Milwaukee, WI

Originally designed and partially constructed as a Staybridge Hotel, progress on this building halted in 2008 offer the economic downturn. The building sat vacant until 2013 when MSOE purchased it for redevelopment as on apartment concept residence hall.

The top two floors are reserved for faculty housing and include the added amenity of an in-unit laundry. All other apartments are available for students at the sophomore level and above. The fourth floor, originally intended as a main lobby for the hotel, was converted to be a conference center with pre-function space, food service an outdoor patio and four conference rooms, seating 12 to 50 people. A 65-car parking garage was maintained and the street level includes over 12,000 square feet of retail space.
