The Mayor’s Design Awards recognize design excellence throughout the City of Milwaukee.
Recipients demonstrate added value to their neighborhoods by restoring, constructing, or enhancing properties in a way that respects the urban fabric and contributes to the character of their surroundings. Recipients receive recognition in three categories: Places and Spaces, Vibrant Corridors, and Urban Renaissance.
Two Greenfire projects received Urban Renaissance recognition: The Wheatley, a redevelopment of a former MPS property into a mixed-use residential lifestyle campus, and Tribute Apartments, a mixed-use building with residential units and commercial space on the R1VER campus.
Urban Renaissance projects add value to the city by providing new or improved options for neighborhood housing or by adding or improving offices, manufacturing, or other amenities that add jobs, strengthen neighborhoods, and enhance the quality of life for residents.
We are proud to be included among the many notable honorees of the award. We thank the Forest County Potawatomi Community and Potawatomi Business Development Corporation for their backing and support and our customers, subcontractors, and partners who help bring these projects to life. Lastly, we thank our team for their hard work and dedication to delivering quality, innovative, and impactful projects. The involvement of everyone allows us to build these impressive developments and bring value and improvement to our surrounding communities.
