August 3, 2018
Foxconn announced it has issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for architects and engineers to provide design services to modernize and enhance its North American corporate headquarters at 611 E. Wisconsin Ave. in Downtown Milwaukee.
“Beginning the RFP process on our North American corporate headquarters is an important step forward in Foxconn’s progress in Wisconsin,” said Dr. Alan Yeung, Director of U.S. Strategic Initiatives for Foxconn. “We are looking for a firm that will support our vision for this key facility and provide design possibilities for the building that both showcase Foxconn’s continuing innovation in leading-edge technologies that AI 8K+5G will enable and the continued development of the transformational Wisconn Valley project.”
The seven-story 611 building is approximately 145,000 square feet, sits on two acres and was purchased by Foxconn from Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. in June. About 500 employees will work from the facility.
