Over the past century, the six stories of commercial space here at 233 N. Water St. have been home to saddlers and sailmakers. Back in the ’60s, it housed a toy company whose owner could boast of having invented the Hula Hoop.
The meticulously restored brick-and-timber loft structure comprises 60,000 square feet of beautifully appointed space. Towering ceilings. Abundant natural light. At every turn, we sought to cultivate a space where you can stretch out mentally and reach for that higher goal.
Eastward facings overlook the bustling thoroughfare of North Water Street and Milwaukee’s vibrant Historic Third Ward neighborhood, a thriving hub of creative, technology and professional service companies; sunset views front onto the Milwaukee River, with downtown and the freeways visible in the near distance.
Green practices are another essential ingredient in our commitment to providing you with a high-quality work environment. Low-flow toilets, waterless urinals and all-flourescent lighting are used throughout our properties.
Indoor air quality is something we regard as a priority. We don’t believe in sealing off the outside world — all our buildings have operable windows to let in fresh breezes. And the green cleaning methods we employ help reduce the presence of compounds to which some individuals may have sensitivities — which helps cut down on worker absences.
It’s our commitment to make The Saddlery home to bright, innovative companies for decades to come.
With our surroundings to inspire you, maybe it’s your company that gives the world its next idea as brilliant as the Hula Hoop.
