Milwaukee, November 11, 2013 – Schlitz Park announced today that Time Warner Cable Business Class (TWCBC) will move to the Riverfront office complex’s Keghouse building at 111 W. Pleasant St. in mid-November. Approximately 80 TWCBC employees will occupy 16,000 square-feet of office space, which provides ample capacity for future expansion.

TWCBC is moving from a nearby building at 1320 N. Martin Luther King Dr. to make room for employees relocating from several other Time Warner Cable (TWC) sites in the area. TWC moved to that building from Schlitz Park in 2001. The building is the former Commerce Street Power Plant and was renovated and developed by Brewery Works, the development and management company that leads Schlitz Park.

“Our relationship with Time Warner Cable goes back 25 years and we’re thrilled to have them back at Schlitz Park,” Said Gary Grunau, Schlitz Park’s co-developer. “Their move reflects our investment and commitment to create a dynamic office community that brings out the best in tenants whether at work or play.”

“We looked at several locations before selecting Schlitz Park as the new home for 80 of our Business Class employees,” said Michael Daly, Vice President, Real Estate and Facilities, Time Warner Cable. “We’re very pleased with the facility and the amenities it provides. In addition, the location is great because it keeps us downtown allowing us to better serve the Milwaukee business community.”

TWCBC joins Schools That Can Milwaukee which moved into Keghouse this past summer. Five thousand square-feet of available space featuring large windows and high ceilings remain available for lease in the 50,000 square-foot building.

Elsewhere in Schlitz Park, crews have been carefully demolishing the Brewhouse as part of the third phase of the riverfront office complex’s multi-million dollar renovation. About 1,500 historical pieces have been salvaged for use elsewhere on campus or for other purposes. Overall Schlitz Park expects to re-use or re-cycle 98 percent of the Brewhouse’s building materials.

This includes reclaiming about 150 pallets of cream city brick and grounding up building concrete to use as a base for the new one-acre Brewhouse Square Park and adjacent road. The park is to the east of the soon to be renovated Executive Building and Stock House that will be home to UMB Fund Services. Three floors of office space measuring 18,000 square feet each remain available in the Stock House for lease.

More than 4,300 employees work in Schlitz Park, home to major Milwaukee organizations including ManpowerGroup, Time Warner and others that provide financial services, health care, employment, education, technology and other important services. Schlitz Park is owned and managed by The Brewery Works, Inc., the organization formed by the families that purchased the Schlitz Park property in 1983.
