The Redmond Company has been selected to design and build the Town Bank Downtown Milwaukee Corporate Center. This high-end, prestigious project was awarded by Town Bank and its parent company, Rosemont Illinois-based Wintrust Financial Corporation. Town Bank has more than 20 branches in Wisconsin and is the sixth-largest bank based in the state. This is the second project in a year that Town Bank has awarded to Redmond. The first was the design and construction of the new Racine branch, which will be completed in Mid-2018.
For the downtown Milwaukee branch, Redmond will build-out the first and second floors of an existing office building at 731 North Jackson Street, Milwaukee. The renovation will total 19,000 square feet. The first floor of the building includes a fully remodeled atrium with a 2-story feature wall to brand the bank’s space. This all-glass structural vestibule was incorporated into the design to allow for the private entrance the bank desired, while still offering open views into the 2-story atrium for all visitors in the 9-story office building.
Additional features of the new branch are sliding glass entrance doors that offer views from the atrium into the office areas and conference room, providing an open feel for the office space. The exterior windows in the private offices are also being widened to offer more expansive views and to allow daylight to penetrate further into the space. Technology features include a high-tech training room with a bar for entertaining, a large conference room with video conferencing, and collaborative media table areas for impromptu meetings.
This fast-track project is expected to be completed in July 2018.
