The Clock Shadow Building is a ground-breaking, sustainable building that was opened in 2012 at 130 W. Bruce St. The building has captured 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, they worked together to design and construct a building that set a community standard for green development.
At the Clock Shadow Building, visitors may engage in self-guided tours 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, including:
- 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
- A rooftop garden with 360 degree city views
