First look at Michels' R1ver project in Harbor District: Slideshow - Milwaukee Business Journal

The Milwaukee Business Journal shares a glimpse of the Michels Corporation R1ver project in the #HarborDistrict.

Michels is one of the largest energy and infrastructure contractors in North America with headquarters in Brownsville, WI.

R1ver includes a new Michels office building, apartments, retail space, and future plans for a hotel and second office.

Take a look at some photos taken of the new building.

Michels Corp. has about 170 people working in the new office building at its R1ver development in Milwaukee, and vice president Tim Michels expects to increase that count in the coming years.
