Privately financed building adds momentum to satellite campus in Wauwatosa
By Tom Daykin of the Journal Sentinel
When University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee officials began working on plans for a satellite campus in Wauwatosa, they pitched the idea as a way to create partnerships between academia and business.
On Wednesday, four years of work led to an announcement of the first privately financed development at Innovation Campus. And that news could help attract more projects.
ABB Inc. plans to develop its new Milwaukee-area headquarters at Innovation Campus, bringing 350 jobs to that location. The three-story, 95,000-square-foot building will be located on three acres in the western portion of the business park, which is east of Highway 45, between W. Watertown Plank Road and Swan Blvd.
