Gravity Marketing LLC, a marketing and events firm located at 305 N. Plankinton Ave. in the Pritzlaff Building near downtown Milwaukee, plans to establish a new office and event venue in the city’s Walker’s Point neighborhood.
The single-story, 5,400-square-foot industrial building at 838 S. 2nd Street would be converted into an event venue with 4,000 square feet of space for events such as weddings, fundraising events and corporate events. The event space will be able to accommodate groups of 50 to 200. Gravity plans to host four to six events there per week, a mix of breakfast, lunch and evening events.
Gravity Marketing also plans to convert the nearby industrial building at 829 S. 1st St. into its new office space. The business has 11 full-time and six part-time employees.
Gravity also plans to use a vacant site at 822 S. 2nd St. has a landscaped surface parking lot.
The 1st Street and 2nd Street properties are owned by Federal Manufacturing Co., which earlier this year moved from Walker’s Point to a new 78,000-square-foot building in Pewaukee. The move allowed Federal Mfg., acquired in 2012 by Loveland, Ohio-based Pro Mach Inc., to consolidate its operations in a new facility. Federal Mfg. owned four buildings and two vacant lots in Walker’s Point.
Saz’s Hospitality Group lans to move its corporate offices, its catering operations and its warehouse functions from the west side of Milwaukee to the former Federal Mft. Building at 201 W. Walker St. in Walker’s Point.
