Photo Essay: Inside the Germania Building

Designed by German-trained architects Schnetzky & Liebert, at the time of construction the Germania was the largest office building in the city of Milwaukee. On its 120th anniversary this year, it remains one of the oldest structures downtown, built a year after City Hall.
“When we looked at projects that can be true to the community and offer a benefit, we have never found a project like Germania. It’s not just bricks and mortar. We do build buildings, but we prefer to build opportunities. We prefer the build up people, we prefer to give them hope. This building mean so much to Milwaukee, and we are proud to be part of the team bringing it back to life.” – Kalan Haywood Sr.
These images were taken during a private tour for project partners and supporters, to show restoration progress at the Germania, and share a vision of historic Westown building as an example of hope for the city’s future.
