This landmark building – notably the tallest building in Wisconsin – offers tenants more than a million square feet of office and retail space and spectacular views from all floors. The building provides one of the most comfortable, professional working environments
in the city.
The US Bank Center, Wisconsin’s tallest building, stands at 601 feet high and contains a total enclosed area of approximately 1.3 million gross square feet. This premier office complex includes a 42-story tower with an average floor size of 22,100 square feet, an expansive two-story lower lobby and atrium that spans on the north and south side of the tower, an attached parking structure, and convenient skywalks to adjacent buildings.
The building was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP Architects and construction was managed by Morse Diesel International, both renowned for their extensive experience in high-rise construction and design. More than 5,000 windows and signature diagonal trusses were integrated into the design to provide a strong, yet contemporary appeal.
Opened in 1973, the US Bank Center, originally known as the First Wisconsin Center, was built to serve as headquarters to First Wisconsin National Bank. The bank changed their corporate name to Firstar Corporation in 1988 as they expanded beyond the State of Wisconsin, and the building became known as Firstar Center in 1992. Firstar Corporation merged with U.S. Bancorp in 2001 and took the latter bank's name, and U.S. Bank Center obtained its current name in 2002.
The building serves as a venue for charity events, supporting many groups including, United Way, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, United Performing Arts Fund, American Lung Association and the Hunger Task Force. Professional on-site management, engineering, housekeeping and a 24/7 security staff, as well as a host of amenities, make the US Bank Center a desirable location for businesses and an enjoyable place for the thousands of daily workers and visitors.
