45,000 sf remodel - branch and corporate

Financial, Office Commercial

PROJECT AWARD: Real Estate Award, Category: Best Office Renovation, Milwaukee Business Journal


The Redmond Company renovated Johnson Financial Group’s 45,000 sf flagship location in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This project is especially exciting because Johnson Financial Group and The Redmond Company have a long history together. For over 25 years, The Redmond Company has been committed to Johnson Financial Group’s growth and success.


Their latest renovation project is no different. The team at Redmond was heavily involved in the planning and our knowledge, expertise and guidance was instrumental in helping fast track the project’s progress. Being involved early in the design phase meant that Redmond was able to assist with permitting and pre-order long lead materials, while also providing input on the project’s scope and budget with the Owner’s architect. Ultimately, saving our client time and money by avoiding costly redesigns or delays due to budget variances.


The project consolidates two of Johnson Financial Group’s downtown locations into one new flagship location. The location includes a first-floor retail branch and administrative staff occupies the top two floors of Cathedral Place, a premier office building in the heart of downtown Milwaukee.


“We’ve partnered with The Redmond Company many times over the last 20 years as they have an outstanding team of professionals who truly understand our business and culture. While they are very experienced in building financial facilities, they are also keenly sensitivity to our unique needs. The latest 45,000 sf renovation of our flagship location in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which was just completed, is no different. Redmond’s expertise and guidance was instrumental in helping fast track the project’s progress. It is truly an enjoyable experience to partner with Redmond – in fact we have been so pleased that we selected them as our partner to create our new branch prototypes.”
