The Trade Hotel
This 180,000 square-foot, 9-story hotel was constructed with PT concrete floors supported by concrete filled steel piles and concrete pile caps. The building is topped with a steel framed roof to allow for optimal column placement in the rooftop restaurant, providing dramatic views of the city. The first two floors of the building are designated for public use including a large lobby, ground floor bar, 400 seat ballroom, and meeting spaces. The first and second floor are connected via a monumental stair taking a sculptural form inspired by Milwaukee’s Hoan Bridge.
