GE Healthcare moving 450 employees from Waukesha to Wauwatosa

GE Healthcare is closing two offices in Waukesha and is moving 450 employees from those offices and some executives from its Waukesha headquarters to its 506,195-square-foot building at 9900 W. Innovation Dr. in Wauwatosa and to 26,414 square feet of space it recently leased next door at 10000 Innovation Dr.
About 150 people will work in the space at 10000 Innovation Dr., said GE Healthcare spokesman Arvind Gopalratnam. Some of those employees are being shifted over from the company’s main 506,195-square-foot Wauwatosa building at 9900 W. Innovation Dr.
The company’s Waukesha campus, located at 3000 N. Grandview Blvd., will remain its headquarters, even though some executives are being shifted to Wauwatosa, Gopalratnam said.
Once the moves are complete the company will have about 1,600 employees at its main Wauwatosa facility and 2,000 employees at its headquarters in Waukesha.
GE Healthcare decided to close the two smaller offices in Waukesha as part of a reorganization process, said Gopalratnam. No jobs are being eliminated as part of the process, he said.
The 10000 Innovation Dr. building is owned by Wauwatosa-based Irgens Development Partners LLC. The 203,532-square-foot office building is located adjacent to GE Healthcare’s main Wauwatosa building The buildings are located in the Milwaukee County Research Park, northwest of the Zoo Interchange.
Irgens was the developer of GE Healthcare’s main Wauwatosa building, which was completed in 2006. In 2007, Irgens sold it to Boston-based Eaton Vance Management Real Estate Investment Group for $96.5 million.
The 10000 Innovation Drive building was originally built in 1999 and was expanded and renovated in 2008. Other tenants in the building include the Medical College of Wisconsin and the corporate headquarters of Wipfli LLP.
Steve Palec and Ray Mazzocco of CB Richard Ellis represented GE Healthcare in brokering the lease at 10000 Innovation Dr.
