The restoration of the historic Button Block building in downtown Milwaukee has created a 94-room Hilton Homewood Suites.
This historic restoration of the building created the opportunity for State and Federal Historic Tax Credits. Features of the renovation include two lobbies, lounge areas, food and beverage facilities, a fitness center on the lower levels and guestrooms with kitchenettes and office area. The plan includes a new sidewalk-level entry plaza on the northern face of the building off of Water Street. The city infrastructure improvements include $700,000 in tax incremental financing to help fund this new pedestrian-oriented entry courtyard.
