Clock Shadow Building, 130 W. Bruce Street, a ground-breaking, sustainable building, opened in 2012, capturing local, regional and national attention and awards for its design, sustainable technologies, quadruple bottom line approach, community-focused tenants and Wisconsin’s first urban cheese maker. Fix Development, a company with the philosophy that real estate development should reach beyond financial returns to positively impact the community and the environment, created the project, partnering with Continuum Architects + Planners and C.G. Schmidt Construction to design and construct a building that set a community standard for green development.
Visitors may engage in a self-guided tour via building signage that highlights how a former brownfield became a community catalyst for development. They will see and experience the many features that set this building apart such as 50% salvaged material utilized in its construction; the United States’ first regenerative-energy elevator; Milwaukee’s first commercial application of rainwater harvesting; designs that enable it to consume 50% less energy and 60% less water; art and architectural features by local artist; and a rooftop garden with 360 degree city views.
