Kahler Slater, an architecture firm, will move its headquarters to the new BMO Tower in the heart of Milwaukee’s Central Business District.
Kahler Slater will occupy nearly 15,000 square feet of office space on the 17th floor of the BMO Tower at 790 N. Water St. in downtown Milwaukee.
The firm will move from its current location at 111 W. Wisconsin Ave. in Milwaukee’s Westown Neighborhood in August of 2021.
“We have enjoyed watching the resurgence of the Westown Neighborhood from our home at the ASQ Center for nearly 20 years, but we seized the opportunity to write the next chapter for Kahler Slater,” said Glenn Roby, executive vice president of Kahler Slater. “It was important to our people that we remain right in the heart of our city and all that it has to offer.”
Kahler Slater partnered with longtime client Irgens to design and deliver the 25-story BMO Tower, which officially opened Sept. 8, as the Wisconsin headquarters of BMO Financial Group.
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett applauded Kahler Slater’s decision to stay in downtown Milwaukee.
“For a long time, the people at Kahler Slater have known about the advantages of being in the center of the City of Milwaukee. There is no better place in the state to take full advantage of the proximity, activity and vitality found in an urban downtown,” Barrett said. “I am pleased the firm has identified an ideal new location for its offices, and I welcome them to the City Hall neighborhood.”
The BMO Tower was developed and is managed by Milwaukee-based Irgens.
