The Milwaukee Business Journal’s Real Estate Awards are a chance to recognize the projects — and the people behind them — that improve our region and continue making this a great community to live, work and visit.  And 2019 was a banner year for the real estate industry in southeastern Wisconsin as evident by the 19 projects we have selected as a award winners.

We are honoring many cool projects in southeastern Wisconsin, including he Milwaukee Bucks’ Deer District near Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee Ballet’s Baumgartner Center for Dance and MSOE Dwight and Dian Diercks Computational Science Hall. Among the other winners were the Lubar Entrepreneurship Center at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Fortress renovation,and Graef’s decision to move its office to The Avenue in downtown Milwaukee.

Given the surge of development in southeastern Wisconsin, we had a strong nomination pool to pick from, with more than 40 projects submitted for consideration for our popular Real Estate Awards program. These awards focus on the best real estate deals and projects completed in 2019, with judges looking strongly on community impact and project success. Projects included are within Milwaukee, Kenosha, Ozaukee, Racine, Walworth, Washington and Waukesha counties.
