MILWAUKEE — Colliers International has arranged the $5.7 million sale of the historic Pabst Boiler House No. 10, a retrofitted office building in Milwaukee’s Brewery District. The 40,744-square-foot, brick-and-timber loft office building is fully occupied by seven tenants, including law firms Borgelt, Powell, Peterson & Frauen SC and Ogletree Deakins. Tom Shepherd, Scott Welsh, Lyle Landowski and Jennifer Huber-Bullock of Colliers represented the seller, Milwaukee-based developer PBH Redevelopment LLC. The team will continue to manage and lease the building on behalf of the new owner, J. Vollrath LLC.
Built in the 1870s and shuttered in 1996, the Pabst Brewery sat vacant for more than 10 years before it was purchased in 2006 by late real estate developer and philanthropist Joe Zilber. In 2007, a team of investors led by Max Dermond and Charlie Trainer purchased Pabst Boiler House No. 10 with plans to convert the building into a boutique office property.
