Construction of two new office buildings at Golf Parkway Corporate Center in Brookfield kicked off last year when many wondered about the future of the office real estate market due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Milwaukee-based Irgens Partners LLC did not seem deterred by this, and neither were tenants who chose to sign leases with the developer.
The smaller of the two new buildings, at 45,000 square feet and two stories, is the future headquarters of Hydrite Chemical Co. The company said it plans to move in Dec. 1. The larger, 186,000-square-foot, six-story building will be mostly occupied by Seattle-based Milliman Inc., which will move its local office there from its current Bluemound Road location in Brookfield.
A recent office market report from real estate brokerage JLL found that suburban office markets have been more resilient than downtown Milwaukee during the pandemic. Irgens is keeping itself busy in the suburbs. Beyond Brookfield, it has additional projects in Wauwatosa.
