The 100 East office tower in downtown Milwaukee is in foreclosure, about a year after it lost a major tenant to a newer downtown building.
The 435,629-square-foot, 35-story office building is located at 100 E. Wisconsin Ave. It has been placed into receivership, according to a foreclosure of mortgage case pending in Milwaukee County Circuit Court.
Friedman Real Estate Management has been appointed receiver, meaning it has temporarily taken over management of the property.
Hertz acquired the building in 2016 for $78 million, according to state records. The acquisition was part of a $416.9 million office portfolio deal for Hertz.
Also in 2016, PricewaterhouseCoopers announced it was moving more than 250 workers from 100 East to the 833 East office building. The move took place that December.
Morningstar Credit Ratings LLC, a national credit rating organization, in 2018 placed a $51.9 million loan on the 100 East building on its watchlist because of the expected drop in occupancy from 83% to 60.4%. The drop in occupancy was due to the Michael Best relocation.
100 East was built in 1989. It has an assessed value of $73.73 million, according to city records.
Neither Hertz nor Wilmington Trust immediately responded to requests for comment.
