Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse, Milwaukee
517 E. Wisconsin Avenue
Milwaukee, WI 53202
Representing one of the last bastions of Romanesque Revival architecture in the Midwest, the Milwaukee Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse currently houses both a U.S. District and U.S. Bankruptcy Court and remains an exquisite example of Richardsonian Style. It was designated as an ENERGY STAR® building in 2000 and re-designated in 2010.
The latest Customer Satisfaction Survey, administered in spring 2012, indicated that 83% of tenants are more than satisfied (rating of four or above on a five-point scale) with both the building and GSA services.
