First place:

The new North­west­ern Mu­tual Tower and Commons

745 N. Prospect Ave. “An in­cred­i­bly sig­nif­i­cant build­ing for the city,” says Marcoux, Mil­wau­kee's de­vel­op­ment com­mis­sioner. “All of that glass was as­sem­bled by peo­ple from our neigh­bor­hoods.”

Sec­ond place:

The new Bucks Arena

901 N. Fourth St.

“A beau­ti­ful build­ing that talks about the city’s fu­ture. A lot of peo­ple from New York are look­ing at Mil­wau­kee who hadn’t be­fore.”

Third place:

Old Main his­toric hos­pi­tal at VA Med­i­cal Cen­ter

5000 W. Na­tional Ave.

Fourth place:

Art deco for­mer A.O. Smith R&D Fa­cil­ity

27th and Hop­kins streets

“It was one of the first open of­fices in the coun­try.”

“A beau­ti­ful design that speaks to re­new­able re­sources.”
