NML’s East Building comes down

A demolition crew this work eliminated the final vertical portion of the East Building at the Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. corporate headquarters campus in downtown Milwaukee.

See a video of the demolition here.

The 16-story, 452,000-square-foot building is being demolished to make way for the 1.1 million-square-foot, 32-story tower and commons building that will be built in its place. Construction work is expected to begin later this year, after the demolition is done, and the new building is expected to be completed in 2017.

Rogers, Minn.-based specialty contracting and waste management firm Veit, which has a Milwaukee-area office in New Berlin, is the project manager for the building demolition project.
