Deal of the week

United Heartland will occupy a 56,000-square-foot office building that Irgens Development Partners LLC plans to build in New Berlin.

United Heartland, a workers compensation insurer, will occupy a 56,000-square-foot office building that Wauwatosa-based Irgens Development Partners LLC plans to build southeast of I-43 and Moorland Road in New Berlin. Irgens will own the building and United Heartland will lease the space.

United Heartland will move its corporate headquarters to the building from its current location in a 52,000-square-foot space at 12695 W. National Ave., New Berlin. Construction will begin in March and is expected to be complete in December. The facility will house up to 300 employees—200 are employed at United Heartland’s current New Berlin office, and the company expects to add another 100 positions over the next 15 years.

"They looked at (locations in) southeastern Wisconsin counties and (at) things like existing employees’ commute times, ease of interstate access, rental rates, taxes and nearby amenities," said United Heartland spokesman Matthew Haran. "Waukesha County seemed to be the best fit overall. Within Waukesha County, there was limited existing office space that truly fit their needs, although they evaluated several existing buildings against two build-to-suit options in the I-43/Moorland Road area they were looking at. They chose the (Irgens) build-to-suit site because they felt the location and setting were optimal for their business."
