Crane goes up at site of BMO Tower


A 280-foot-tall crane went up this weekend at the site of the BMO Tower, a 25-story office and parking complex under construction at 790 N. Water St., across from city hall in downtown Milwaukee. The crane will be a part of Milwaukee’s skyline for the next 18 months as crews work to complete the tower by December 2019.
The erection of the crane also marks a turning point in the project, said Rob Oldenburg, vice president of development at Irgens Partners, the tower developer. Crews are just weeks away from completing the “tedious” foundation work that’s needed to prepare the tower’s site, which was once home to a parking structure, he said.
“For us, we’ve been working on the project for about two years,” Oldenburg said. “And we’ve been working diligently to get to this point. Our favorite part is when we’re able to get out of the ground and go vertical.”
