With the erection of structural steel recently completed on the BMO Tower project in downtown Milwaukee, construction is slated to be substantially finished in December.
Milwaukee-based Irgens Partners LLC is developing the 25-story office building at 790 N. Water St. The project team and city leaders marked the completion of the steel work with a topping-off ceremony in late June.
According to the developer, construction crews are working on an accelerated schedule in order to finish the project on time after the parking structure took two-and-a-half months longer than expected.
The entire building is expected to be enclosed in glass by mid-August, and work on the roof finished in September.
The BMO Tower is so far about 55% leased. Tenants will include BMO Harris Bank, Michael Best & Friedrich LLP, Heartland Advisors, Inc. and Andrus Intellectual Property Law, LLP.
