We are excited to share that we are moving our headquarters to the new BMO Tower in the heart of the Milwaukee’s Central Business District in August 2021. Our new space will occupy 15,000 sf on the 17th floor. Kahler Slater partnered with longtime client Irgens to design and deliver the 25-story BMO Tower, which officially opened Sept. 8, 2020.
“We have enjoyed watching the resurgence of the Westown Neighborhood from our current 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. “It was important to our people that we remain right in the heart of our city and all that it has to offer.”
“A move to the BMO Tower gives us an opportunity to design for our needs in a time when the fundamental value of the workplace is being redefined. This project will be a benchmark for others considering new workplaces at this time.” Roby added. “This is a great opportunity to position the firm for the future.”
The BMO Tower will provide panoramic views of the Central Business District and supportive amenities for our Milwaukee-based employees.
One important consideration for our headquarters is the health and well-being of Kahler Slater’s employees and clients. The BMO Tower features a touchless arrival experience and robust systems to maximize air quality. Our focus on designing the space will support our needs and add resiliency in a post-pandemic environment. We see the new office will also help us recruit the best talent in a very competitive industry.
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.”
