Middleton-based The Bruce Company recently purchased 5.85 acres at 520 S. 92nd St. in the city of Milwaukee, for $730,000 from Allan-Knox Inc. The sale was brokered by Gordon Steimle of Ogden & Company, who represented The Bruce Company, and Bill Langhoff and Bob Flood of RFP Commercial, who represented Allan-Knox. The site is located near the Zoo Interchange. The Bruce Company, a landscaping firm, plans to build a new, 4,000-square-foot office and training facility on the property and will renovate an existing 6,000-square-foot building on the site. A groundbreaking ceremony will be held today to celebrate the start of construction for the project. The new building has been designed by Quorum Architects and will include several environmentally friendly "green" features, including a metal roof, exterior finishes using local recycled materials and a rain garden to control storm water runoff. The building will be constructed by Ogden Construction, a division of Ogden & Company Inc. "This property will help us to better serve our customers and provides us with room for expansion," said Jeff Joutras, vice president of sales and marketing for The Bruce Company. "We currently rent space near Miller Brewing and are excited to make this commitment to stay in the city and to build a new office/training center for our employees."
