The Walgreens Oakland location won in the category of “Best Face Forward,” and the 27th Street location won in the category of “Plays Well With Others”. Awards are given to buildings with unique and innovative designs that complement the diversity of Milwaukee’s neighborhoods and enhance the City’s image.
Both locations were designed by The Albion Group. Brian Cummings, owner of MRED-Cummings, was the developer for the 27th and National location and a co-developer for the Oakland location with owner Ted Balistreri. The awards ceremony was held at UW-Milwaukee’s School of Architecture and Urban Planning.
